Welcome 





Formal! 



Welcome to another issue of the world's best new software should 



Amiga mag. This month has seen the release 
of the new mid-range Amiga that many 
users, ourselves included, have been eagerly 
waiting for. Its release was confirmed on the 
day we went to press, but you'll find a stop 
press news story about the new machine on 
Page 1 6. The press conference for the new 
machine featured Bars and Pipes Pro2 and 
Real3D2 quite heavily, and we have reviews 
of both these fantastic programs inside. 

We have a big feature on Cyberpunk, the 
cultural phenomenon that sprung out of 
home computers, and continues to affect the 
uses that Amigas are put to. If you ever 
wanted to know what hacking and jacking 
are all about, turn to Page 33 to find out. 

We are often asked to put on our 
reviews whether a piece of software is 
A1200 compatible or not. Well we work on 
the assumption that all software is. The 
machine has been available for six months 
now, it is essentially the standard Amiga, all 



be compatible. 
Rather than have a 
little icon on all our 
reviews, we'll make a 
point of saying in 
print if a program 
isn't AGA savvy. 
Inside this issue 




Marcus Dyson, editor 



you'll find a review of Lemmings 2, you 
know it's going to be good, but exactly how 
good is it? Well Clare didn't get to bed until 
sunrise for three days, it's that good. Check 
it out on Page 54. 

Elsewhere in the issue you'll find a 
review of VistaPro 3, the latest release 
allows anyone with an AGA machine to see 
those stunning landscapes in full colour. 

If you didn't know already (where have 
you been?) we are having a huge Amiga 
show at Wembley next month, there's a 
three page preview in News. Make sure you 
get along to the show, we'll all be there!

GETTING STARTED 

IMrkVfnch r*l*m |EJCr«r.ti»Ht. V." - V "" " ItMOl 




Here's what you will see when you boot the 
Coverdisk. Although all programs run from this cut 
down Workbench, you can't always quit back again. 

Right if you have an AGA machine (A1200 or 
A4000) hold down both mouse buttons after 
turning on and select the Enhanced mode from 
the graphics mode. Everybody else with any 
model 1Mb Amiga just turn on and pop in your 
Coverdisk. About 30 seconds to a minute later, 
you will be left looking at a rather plain 
Workbench screen, with a big Coverdisk icon on 
the right-hand side. 

Move the mouse pointer over to the icon, 
and click twice rapidly with the left mouse but- 
ton. The above screen will open. To select any 
of the programs or data files, just point with 
the mouse and double click on the screen with 
the left button. 

Getting out of a program or data file is 
slightly more difficult. The demos have no exit 
- to get out you either have to turn off or reset 
by holding down the Ctrl key and the two keys 
either side of the spacebar. Atoms is supposed 
to exit when you press the right mouse button. 
Sadly on Workbench 2 or later machines it 
crashes instead. This exit method works for the 
Inspiration anim though. 

Getting out of either the Atoms.readme 
file or the Check. Doc file can either be done by 
hitting the Esc key or by clicking the left button 
until the end of the document. All the contents 
have been tested on all Amigas, but if you have 
a slightly weird one (2Mb of chip RAM on a 1.3 
machine, or all four floppy drives) you may 
have to disconnect your expansions to get the 
Coverdisk to work. 

Wait, there's more! 

Two important files are not immediately obvi- 
ous. These are the complete assembly source 
code for Atoms (handy if you followed the 
Bullfrog Devpac machine code tutorials) and 
also the Check program. To copy these pro- 
grams, some knowledge of the Shell is useful. 




Charlie Chimp probably won because of its presentation. Press fire to play, or one of the labelled function keys (F1- 
F3) for the relevant information. Games can be fast or pretty, but unless it's easy to get into, people won't like it. 



THIS IS THE winning entry of ihe GamesMaster 
AMOS programming competition. Well, almost - it's 
only a three level demo of the full 30 level shareware 
game. If you like it and want the full version, instruc- 
tions on where to send the £5 shareware fee are built 
into Ihe game. 

What? You don't get the whole game on the 
Coverdisk? The reason is the size - the full game 
almost completely fills a disk. The second prize win- 
ner, another platform game called Super Blue Kid by 
Frazer Ashworth, was of a similar size. The third prize 
winner, a rather spiffy shoot-em-up called Stellar 



Escape (by Antonio Alberto Ruiz and his friends) was 
four disks! 

So you only get a lasic of the full game, just like 

proper, commercial' software. If anyone out there in 

the real world can define any differences that aren't 

cosmetic between shareware and commercial boxed 

software, then you're smarter than I am. 

Anyway. Charlie Chimp is a platform game, and 
it's fairly simple in most respects. Charlie's task is to 
repaint all the platforms on the screen, and he must do 
it three times for each level. To stop him doing this 
there are plenty of nasties roving around. Fortunately

COVERDISK 



FRACTION GOBLINS DEIVIO 



Coombe Valley Software PAL/NTSC 

Here's a quite substantial demo of an educational 
program. It's aimed to help children who are hav- 
ing difficulty with that horrible maths subject 
fractions. And helping you out is a tribe of goblins 
• hence the title. 

The basic idea is that after a quick break at 
the local goblin playroom, you return to discover 
that your pencil case has been ransacked. You 
have to move around the maze of rooms, finding 
a pen here, ruler there and so on, until your pencil 
case collection is complete. 

Playing it is not too difficult - maybe it could 



have been easier by using the mouse. To move 
north, south, east or west simply type n, s, e or w 
followed by the return key. Pick things up by typ- 
ing 'Take object', have a description retold with 
'Look', and find out what you are carrying with 
'Inventory'. Have fun, and remember - the full pro- 
gram tests on all four fraction areas 

By the way. my (Pat McDonald's) personal 
apologies to Coombe Valley Software for getting 
the name wrong. The above is correct the 
Coverdisk label is wrong.

for you. mosl of them arc fairly stupid and don't home 
in on you. 

You cun't jump over them - in fact you can't jump 
at all - but if you press fire then you can whack ihem 
into the edge of the screen. If you sec a boxing glove, 
give it a whack and it'll bash all the nasties level with 
you on-screen. 

Also available to you is a rope, and this comes in 
handy when a platform doesn't have a ladder going up 
to it. But you only get one of these, so make sure you 
don't waste it in the wrong place. Also, sometimes you 
have to take it down again in order to use it in a differ- 
ent place on the same screen. 

To paint the platforms, just run over them and 
they'll change colour. Make sure that when you finish 
one painting run. you start on the next coat where the 
old one ended - it can be very frustrating to run around 
not putting any paint down. 

A 1 200 owners will be pleased that the game takes 
account of the extra power in their machines, and is a 
lot better as a result. On older Amigas, it's still good, 
but you haven't quite got the slickness. 

Brian Bell, the author, is thinking about doing an 
AI200-only version, as well as a follow up - but this 
depends on whether or not many people support him 
with a shareware contribution. 

People who use AMOS will be pleased that Brian 
has left Ashley Cunningham's graphics .abk files on 
the disk where you can get at them. They arc used in 
the AMOS tutorial this month, on Page 109. He will 
also supply the complete AMOS source code if you 
send him £10. 

Personally. I don't think there's a huge amount of 
mileage in this sort of AMOS game. Platform games 
need the maximum speed possible to get the maximum 
graphics moving on screen at once. AMOS is a good 
programming language, but it isn't ideal for this. But 
Charlie Chimp shows what you can do with a bit of 
thought and a lot of effort. 



ATOMS 

Tom Kuhn ■ PAL/NTSCS 

ST Version By B Hewlett 

This multiplayer only game seems rather tame at 
first. Before you can start start it, click on the 
number of players who want to play, and the 
game's board will appear. If your mouse pointer 
is corrupted, that's because you're using an AGA 
machine without setting the enhanced mode • 
the 'Getting started' box at the bottom left of the 
opposite page details this. 

Playing the game is simple in theory. All you 
do is take turns putting differently coloured 
atoms on to the board. Each player has a separate 
colour for their atoms. You can put atoms on top 
of atoms if they are of the same colour, but this is 
where the gameplay comes in. 

In the middle of the board, up to three atoms 
can be placed without causing problems. Around 
the edges, two atoms can cohabit the same space 
without a hitch. At the comers you can only place 
one atom. If you put another atom beyond these 



limits, the space explodes, blowing atoms onto 
the surrounding spaces and changing the colours 
of enemy atoms. 

The winner is the player whose atoms cover 
the entire board. As explosions occur, so do chain 
reactions where excess atoms cause further 
explosions. Towards the end of the game, you can 
literally change the whole board by putting on 
one atom! 

Atoms is not an original game - the original 
was done on the Atari ST by B Hewlett. However, 
Tom Kuhn has done a good job on the conversion. 
Machine code programmers can find the Devpac 
source code on the Coverdisk, saved under the 
name Atoms. S. 

For those who check out the directory on the 
Coverdisk, you'll notice that the Atoms program 
is much smaller than the source code (25K as 
opposed to 35K). There's a very simple reason for 
this • the program has been crunched with 
Power-Packer Professional V4. Uncrunched, the 
program is about 100K long. 

A large part of this is the Noisetracker music 
module, which is included into the program right 
at the end of the Assembly source code listing. So 
if you've been looking for an example of includ- 




Mere's a gam* that's heading towards th* interesting stag*. Any minute now, chain reactions will start run- 
ning all over the board, completely altering it from one go to the next. Persevere with this game - it's worth it.

COVERDISK 



CHECK V4 

Chris Brown ■ All Amigas 

This is a dead handy Shell utility, and it's useful 
for startup script files. It's purpose is to find out 
exactly what version of Kickstart is in use at a 
particular moment. 

It may seem like a trivial exercise - after all, 
you can just see if the Version or Why commands 
are available, for Kickstart 2 or 3 respectively. 
Yes, you could do that but not at the start of a 
script and there's no way to find out if someone 
is using future versions of Kickstart version 4?). 

Cftec/r works by generating an error code, 
which the Amiga code can recognise with an If 
Warn statement. To see if a particular version of 
Kickstart is in use, you have to check for that ver- 
sion number. These version numbers are the 
compilation number - because the code is com- 
piled into machine code at different stages, this 
number actually increases. 

So long as Commodore keep the compilation 
numbers at the same place, Check should work 
for all future versions of Kickstart (like the pro- 
totype version 4). 

What's the point? Well, certain programs in 
the C directory, like Install, do not work on dif- 
ferent Kickstarts,

Ever wondered how Lemmings got invented? 
Well, one lunchbreak in September 1989. Mike 
Daily did this little animation. He wanted to 
see just how small you could make a character 
that was as well animated as possible. 

Gary Timmon did a couple of tweaks, and 
somehow or other Dave Jones (the gaffer of 
DMA Design) saw the potential of the graphics 
as a game. About 17 months later. Lemmings

We duplicate about IHO.tKX) disks every month. Out of 
all those, obviously a few will be faulty. If the disk or 
any of the programs will not load or run properly. 
don'l panic! 

Users of machines that precede Workbench 2 
could try using DiskDoctor, refer to your manual for 
more details. Unfortunately DiskDocior is not included 
with Workbench 2 or 3.

Protect your Coverdisk 



There are two ways of making a 
copy of your disk, and this is the 
easy one. Don't be put off by 
the fact that you need to use 
the Shell or CLI: it's actually a lot 
easier than you might think.

It means the disk you wont to copy, so put the Coverdisk 

in the drive and press the Return key.

4. Wait for a while and it will read all the information off 
the Coverdisk, telling you how far it has got. Then it will 
ask you to insert the 'Destination' disk. Put the disk you 
wont to copy your Coverdisk on to in the drive and press 
the Return key. Note that the disk does not need to be 
formatted already.

5. Put the source disk and destination disk in o couple 

more times when the Amiga asks for them. When it says 

"Diskcopy Finished" just type in: 

•ndcli 

to get out of the Shell or CLI. You may have to put the 

Workbench disk in again. Now your copy is ready! 



DISK PROBLEMS? 

If you have a problem with the disk - and you're sure the disk is in 
full working order - then you may need a little help. If you ring us on 
any Tuesday, and ask to speak to Pat McDonald, he will do his best 
to help you. Please understand, giving this sort of advice is time-con- 
suming and we are very busy people, so only call if you really have to 
and do be considerate If we can't talk to you just then. If the problem 
is particularly complex It Is better to send It to us in written detail. It 
will then be dealt with in the Workbench pages of the magazine. 



BE CAREFUL! 

We have done our best to check 
that all of the programs on the 
Amiga Format Coverdisk are sim- 
ple to use and have no viruses. We 
cannot usually answer complex 
telephone queries on the software 
(see the Disk Problems? box) and 
we do not accept liability for any 
consequences of using the numer- 
ous programs that are on the disk. 



COPYRIGHT 

Unless it is specifically stated, the 
programs on the Coverdisks are 
not in the Public Domain and the 
copyright remains with the copy- 
right-holder of the program. 

Because some of the programs 
on the Coverdisks are not PD, sell- 
ing or distributing them without 
the copyright-holder's specific per- 
mission is against the law

RUMOURS 

Our sources reveal thot Commodore are plan- 
ning a new monitor to enable users to gat the 
most from the new A 1200 AGA graphics 
modes. The screen which is sat to replace the 
1085S will be a high resolution multisync, giv- 
ing you aN the advantages of the AGA screen 
modes with none of the flicker. Expect mare 
news on tMs soon. 



Art Department Professional H constantly 
adding to it's vast repertoire of loader and 
savor modules. The latest addition is Video 
Toaster Framestore format. AdPro becomes 
the first item of third party software to 
offer the format. AdPto 2.3 also introduces a 
hotMnk to Deluxe Paint 4.6, which gives AdPro 
access to DPainfs primary, secondary and ani- 
mation buffers. 

This will allow networked machines to 
manipulate Toaster images, evan If they 
are not equipped with a toaster. All very 
exciting if you ore an American. But till there's 
o PAL Toaster, of no use to us on this side of 
the pond. 

HELP ON HAND 

JJc are a new company, but as we stoted sev- 
eral Issues ago, they have a lot of experience 
with Commodore micros. To help you gat the 
most out of your Amiga, they have prepared o 
series of disks that form a full tutorial on 
using the machine. Tho course Is aimed at new 
Amiga users, or those who have been using 
their machine from games, but may wish to 
exploit more of Its creative potential. 
Subscribers to the course get 1? disks dealing 
with the Amiga system, software, hardware, 
design, hints and tips. An added bonus Is that 
subscribers will also have access to a personal 
and A service. 

In a similar vein, JJc are offering a Pea Pal 
tutorial, combining a disk and 50-pago book- 
let, this is done with approval of Pan Pal 
owners Gordon Horwood. If you think you 
could benefit from JJc's experience, give them 
o coll on 0494 883347. 



The MBX1200 may hove been the first, but 
we always knew H wouldn't be the only trap- 
door RAM expansion/dock/FPU board for the 
A 1200. Power have proved as right. Storting 
at C185.9S for 4Mb of RAM with dock but no 
FPU the rouge goes all Hie way to 4Mb of 
RAM with dock and SOMhz 68882 for 
£339.95. Whether you get one of these or an 
MBXI200 comes down to price, and whether 
you want 4Mb. Coll Power on 0234 843388 
for details of the spec you require.

Power have launched a 1.76Mb external 
drive, for use with any Workbench after 2.04. 
Software is included to read 1.44Mb PC disks. 
Existing drive owners can upgrade. No price as 
yet, call Power on 0234 843388 for details. 






It has been long rumoured, and now it is here. Commodore's 
030 based mid range machine is a down-specced A4000. 



On March 24. a! their Maidenhead headquarters. 
Commodore put an end to all (he speculation about a new 
Amiga. It will he a 4MX) with a Motorola 68030 processor. 
You've probably read in the press for some lime now about 
a fabled new Amiga, and this is it. Obviously the gap 
between the fabulous value A 1200 and the slightly less 
ob\ious bargain, the A4000. had let be bridged Many, our- 
seises included, theorised at great length as lo what form the 
machine would take, and at first, the new Amiga seems a 
little disappointing, but when you consider the prices things 
start to look a lot more positive. The machine will have 4Mb 
of RAM as standard and will be available in cither X(> Mb or 
120 Mb hard drive configurations. Prices are £*W9 and 
£ 1 .099 respectively. 

There are only a couple of shadows over the new 
announcement. Commodore are pushing the A4000/030 as a 
3D ray-tracing/music/DTP/mulitimcdia workstation, but for 
these applications the drive sizes on offer look a bit small, 
this is mediated by the fact that you can buy cheap 3.5-inch 
IDE drives, and the controller can accept two. The second 
concern is how can Commodore hope i< 1 maintain the price 
of the A4000/040 when all you have to do is by an 030 



machine and bung a 040 chip in? Expect lo sec the 
A4(XX)A)40 down in price soon! Commodore demonstrated Real JD2 (see review on Page 1 3S», Smla, Bars and Pipes Pro 
2 (Page 142) and T\'Paint2 on the A4000 and we're now convinced the Amiga is a platform lo lake on all comers. 



DMA drop Amiga 




Pictured: DMA Design who ore responsible for Lemmings 2. Say hello and 
then wave goodbye; they're quitting Amiga programming because of piracy. 

DMA Design, the company responsible for Lemmings, are not produc- 
ing any original Amiga games after June. The decision was made after 
the release ol Lemmings 2, because the level of pirae> »ui the Arnica is 
too high. David Jones, who formed DMA with the release of BUnxi 
Money, told AF: "No original Amiga software is planned. Amiga hard- 
ware sales are growing rapidly, and software sales falling, so piracy is 
increasing. I'd love to see CD lake off. because that would help a lot. 

"We will be producing another Lemmings for the Amiga, because 
most people who play it actually buy it. We will monitor our forthcom- 
ing releases. Walker and Hired Guns, carefully. If the silualion picks up. 
we may consider other original projects." 

Ian Hetheringion of Psygnosis. publishers of DMA. commented: 
"We will continue lo support the Amiga as long as it is viable. DMA arc 
entitled to their opinions, but the situation is the same on other formats . 
We are investing heavily into CD because it is pirate-proof - virtually." 

The news from DMA is proof thai if you copy games you arc 
killing the future of the Amiga as a games machine.

(maybe) 




We w 



You may have read in all the other, not so intelli- 
gent, computer magazines about an alien ninja 
ANT called Zool. But not here, we never thought 
he was an ant, for two reasons, we read the press 
releases from publisher Gremlin, who were specific 
in not stating that he was an ant anywhere, and the 
other reason is that he doesn't look like an ant. 
Ants have 6 legs, Zool has two legs and two arms. 
Simple innit. Watch out for Zool 2, it won't have 
any ants in it. 

Here is the Alien called Zool, he is not on ant, despite 
what Amiga Power and the other magazines may say. 



Al AF we're still waiting tor ihc 

famous Opalvision roaster chip,

AMIGA SCORES 




James Pond 3 here in September, the A 1 200 
version is getting olong swimmingly. 

we can look forward to James Pond 3, 
where a new star will emerge - Finnius 
Frog - which introduces a two-player 
option. Again, there will be a 1200-only ver- 
sion available separately. 

The other four releases have working 
titles at the time of writing. They are: 
Diggers, an arcade/strategy game released 
on the 1200 (June) and the 600 
(September); Flag, a full-screen isometric 
3D strategy game for the 600 (September); 
Dino-Worlds, an action/puzzle game for the 
1200 (October) and the 600 (November); 
and lastly. Beastball. a futuristic two-player 
football game , released on the 1200 
(November) and the 600 (December). We 
will give you more details of these games 
nearer the time ot release. Contact 
Millennium on 0223 844894. 



Between it's launch in October 1992 and 
Christmas the A1200 sold over 44,000 units. 



1 992 WAS A record- 
breaking year for 
Commodore, and the 
Amiga particularly. 
Figures published 
reveal the A600 sold 
200.000 units in the 
last quarter, and the 
new A 1 200 sold 
44,000 machines 
between its launch in 
October and the end of 
the year. The combined 
sales figures of all Amigas is 390.000. This continued sales 
success ensures that our machines will continue to have soft- 
ware support for many years to come. 

OCR for less 

We liked the AlfoScon with OCR when 

we reviewed it {AFAO - 79 per cent), 

but we hated the price. £335 is a lot to 

pay, even with OCR. Now Golden Image 

have dropped the price to on altogether 

more reasonable f 149. For this you get 

the 256 greyscole hand held scanner 

with software, a program to let you 

merge scans lo make a wider picture 

than the scon head, and Migraph Junior OCR. If you have to key in lots of 

typed or printed material this could save you hours. If you have 2Mb of RAM 

and a hard drive, call Golden Image on 081-365 1 102.

Last year ihcre was the highly successful, but a bit packed.

editor Marcus Dyson designed all the posters and tickets 
and stuff, in facij. The show was a massive success, much 
more so than the dark and dingy GanwsXfasicr Live show

GM Live turned out to be considerably less packed 
than the FES, and this year Hcwland. the dudes and 
dudesses who make GamesMastcr the TV programme.

Marpet Developments have been setting mem- 
ory expansions to users of the Atori ST for 
years, but as you can imagine, that won't pay 
the rent these days. So they have targeted the 
Amiga market for o new range of RAM 
upgrades. Starting with a humble A500 0.5 
Mb board, they go all the way up to 8Mb 
expansions for the CDTV. Marpet pride them- 
selves on their service and support, this 
remains to be seen, but their low prices how- 
ever are evident immediately. Try these: A500 
0.5Mb no clock £13.99; A500 Plus 1Mb 
£19.99; A600 1Mb no clock £22.99; A600

there's no Hord Drive Install disk with the

the problem. Just £5.99 will bring you oil the

WE TOLD YOU 

MULTIMEDIA 
WAS THE FUTURE 

Manchester 2000, the group who are trying to 
bring the Olympic games to the home of the 
late great Factory records are using an Amiga 
to do it. An A4000 running Scala MM700 soft- 
wore to present Mane's cose. Commodore's 
Miht Gosheron, Multimedia soles manoger 
soid: "The Amiga has a deserved reputation as 
on unbeatable presentation platform, and we 
are delighted that Manchester 2000 has cho- 
sen to use it in its campaign." 



After the stonkingly wonderful, but a bit 
pricey, mate, A 1230 GVP have announced 
another A1200 add on. The A1200 
SCSI/RAM* will be similar to the MBX1200 in 
that it will offer RAM expansion capabilities 
up to 4Mb and a socket for on FPU to be 
added, but in addition to this it will have 
GVP's acclaimed high speed SCSI interface. 
Not yet here, the board will be marketed by 
UK distributors Silica, call them on 082 309 
1 11 1 for details. 



Oigita International's excellent Wordworth II 
(AMI — 91 per cent) document processor is 
now AGA enhanced. The new release will be 
able to make use of all those high resolution, 
2S6 colour screen modes. The program also 
supports all the Amiga's standard file formats 
for imported graphics. Digita 039S 270273. 



Are you o demo writer, hove you produced 
anything new and exciting that shows of the 
obilities of the A1200? If so and if your demo 
will run on a standard A1200 HD40, and it 
mentions the Amiga - and the software used 
in some way, is hard drive installable, loops 
continuously, and is family viewable and public 
domain - then you may want to send it to:

Mindscape's fowl play 

From Mindscape in September comes the bizarrely titled platform game 
Alfred Chicken. - ft looks like it will rival Putty in the cuteness depart- 
ment. In the game you'll take Alfred through 11 levels of fantasy In 
search of his beloved fire-engine (?). To foH the poultry character, 
the designers have invented the Meka-Chickens. presumably 
some kind of mutant Paxo-filled nightmare. 

The next release from Mindscape is the sequel to the best- 
selling isometric RPG game Legend (see Page 92). Worlds of 
Legend is similar in style to the original game, but it's based around 
four main characters set in the Empire of the Moon. The new game 
promises to be larger than Legend, with dozens of new puzzles 
and traps to catch you out. Worlds of Legend Is to be released 
In June, but for information before then contact Mindscape 
on 0444 246333. 



Let there be light 

Genesia is the title of the next game from German software house Microlds. makers of 
cutesy platform game Nicky Boom (AF42 -88 per cent). Genesia is a management simu- 
lation, similar to Caesar and Sim City, where you are placed at the head of a race of 
people. Your job is to look after them and make them prosper, keeping their lives free 
from problems such as famine and war. Genesia will 
be released in May. 

Also released through Daze Will be The 
Patrician, a historical trading game from another 
German company Ascon GmbH. The game is for 
one-to-four players, and promises elements such as 
political intrigue and blackmail. The Patrician has 
been top of the German software charts for some 
time, but to play it yourself you'll have to wait until 

its release in June. Daze Marketing can be reached I ain't gonna play Sim City, I think

Socttr Kid's basically a platformer, but it has the 
added magic of football to liven it up. 

Following Arabian Nights (sec Page 64), Ihe 
next game from Knsalis will be the long- 
awaited Soccer Kid. Set in the USA at the time 
of the World Cup in 1994. Soccer Kid is a 
scrolling platform game where you must 
recover the Cup which has been stolen by

goal. It's due for release in May. so we should 
be able to bring you a review in next month's 
issue. Contact Krisalis on 0709 372290. 



Pacific Islands is widely respected os the best

Life in a children's ward can seem pretty daunting 

if you're a little un? One pair of dedicated Amiga 

enthusiasts think that they can make it seem that much 

better with the help of Harry. 

Andy Nuttall visited Lewisham 

Hospital to find out 







Rolf Harris, supporter of the 
Horry project, takes time out 
to create some doodles. 



FOR TWO YEARS 

Mike Blackuell and his 
15-year-old son Chris 
have been spreading the 
word of Harry, a project 
they set up to get Amiga 
computers into children's 
hospital wards. Harry 
stands for Helping And 
Responsibly Reassuring 
Youngsters, and the idea 
is to use the Amiga to 
reassure kids that hie in hospital isn't that had. 

Mike raises sponsorship from companies like 
Canon. OKI. Commodore and Future Publishing (pub- 
lishers of AF) to offer special discounts on their 
equipment to the project, so equipment may be bought 
through Harry at a very low price. A Harry pack - an 
Amiga 600 with Deluxe Paint IV. subscriptions to 
Amiga Format and Amiga Power. Lemmings. Dizzy 
and 10 blank disks - costs around £260. 

Mike explains that Harry is not a charity though: 
"We can't set ourselves up as a charity, so financially 
we are self-sufficient. The companies which support us 
are very willing to give us special prices, so we can 
pass these discounts on to the hospitals." 

i ntil now. hospitals are advised b> the government to 
purchase a certain type of computer. Mostly it's an 
Archimedes, sometimes a PC-compatible - which 
work out expensive. When Mike approaches a hospital 
with his scheme, they arc surprised by the low cost. 
When the Amiga is installed, they arc also surprised by 
the power of the machine - like many people, they had 
previously written off the Amiga as merely a games 
machine - but a child given five minutes on a program 
like Deluxe Paint can change all that. 

A total of 15 children's wards are equipped with 
Harry. All have the basic set-up. while some have 
bought other equipment such as a printer, so they can 
print out the children's drawings and display them. 

The most recent installation has been at Lewisham 
hospital in North London, where we caught up with 
Mike and Chris as they demonstrated the system. 

Also in attendance was Rolf Harris, who has been 
a Harry supporter since the beginning - several months 
ago Chris was a guest on Cartoon Time where he 
demonstrated his animations. Rolf explains how he 
sees Harry fitting into hospitals: "It's nice to be 
involved in this, even as an observer. I've watched 
Chris since he was about 13. and the developments in 
his work have been amazing. It's like magic when you 
sec kids come in and they go to their ward. You know 
what hospitals are like - nobody wants to be there. 
This gives them a lot of pleasure." 

Lewisham hospital received funds from local police- 
men who staged a special event to raise money. PC 
Roy Wood, who led the event, explains what they did: 
"A few officers cycled in uniform 450 miles across 



Germany. We went to official func- 
tions, and got sponsorship from 
them. In all we raised over £3000. so 
we gave each of the hospitals £ I .(XX). 

"I think that this is the best idea 
that came up. The other hospitals 
went for TVs and videos, but this is a 
project that can be extended and 
serves a useful purpose. Hopcfulh 
we're going to do a big thing again 
next vear and raise more money." 

Mike's aim is to get an Amiga in 
even- children's ward in the country. 
With about 1.000 wards in total, it's 
a hell of a goal: but with 15 wards 
under his belt he certainly has the 
determination. So if you're young 
and worried about going into hospi- 
tal - don't be. it's not as frightening 
as it may seem... O 




Kerry-Ann Sicard, aged 9, gets a small amount of tuition in Deluxe Point from 
Amiga Format's ever-friendly staff writer. 



SO WHO EXACTLY IS HARRY ANYWAY? 




Chris Blockwell, creator of Harry, 
p-p-picks up o penguin... 



Chris Blackwell is a self-taught 
computer artist, whose work 
was featured way back in Amiga 
Format 21. when he was but a 
youngster of 13. He uses an 
Amiga running Deluxe Paint and 
Scala to create his slideshows. 
each starring a character called 
Harry, who receives an injury 
and is subsequently admitted to 
a children's hospital. 

At the moment two shows 



are available, Harry gets a Stitch 
and Harry has a Bloodtest, soon 
a third will be added, entitled 
Amy has a Fracture. When a 
child is admitted to hospital with 
a similar injury, he or she can 
play the slideshow and find out 
exactly what happens to Harry 
under the circumstances. 

The presentation helps kids 
realise hospitals aren't such 
worrying places after all.

NEWS PREVIEW 



Intrepid staff writer Andy Nuttall ventures into the deepest corners of 
Hertfordshire to bring you an inside view of Frontier, The Sequel To Elite... 









ONE OF THE most eagerly awailcd games 
this summer has to be Frontier. And now 
Amiga Formal can bring you the most up-lo- 
date information about what could be the 
biggest game ever - literally! 

The sequel to what was one of the biggest 
computer games ever {Elite) is just a matter of 
weeks away from completion. Although pro- 
grammer David Brabcn has been working on 
the project for four years, he has only recently 
injected some payability into it. and luckily 
I've managed to spend a day actually playing 
the game. Like Elite it's not an easy game to 
play at first, so most of your initial lime is 
spent getting to grips with your spaceship - 
and it's only after playing the game for a few 
hours (hat you really gel a feel for the size and 
scope of it. It really is vast. 

For those of you who don't know, the original 
Elite pul you in the shoes of Peter Jameson, a 
space pilot in charge of a Cobra Mk III. This 
was a spacecraft with a reasonable cargo 
space, and huge potential in terms of blasting- 
cverything-in-sight. With this ship, and a small 
amouni of credits, your (ask was lo roam the 
eight galaxies in the game, shooting enemies 
and (rading lo make money. 

Frontier will cast you as Commander 
Jameson's grandson, whose career as a space 
trader is given a boos( after being left a space- 
ship in his father's will. Like its predecessor. 
Frontier will give you a small amount of 
information about the gamcplay. and leave you 
to work the rest out for yourself. The scope is 



XT F 'l v *%* 



so greal ihai i( enables you to lake one of 
many roles: you can play a trader, a bounty 
hunter, a piraic. a smuggler - basically, you 
name it. you can play it. 

While Elite had a little over 2.000 planets 
for you to explore - an enormous amouni for a 
BBC microcomputer with ?2K of memory - 
Frontier has 100.000.000.000 final's one-hun- 
dred billion) planets. These arc contained 
within one galaxy, which contains thousands 
of separate solar systems, each containing 
between 0-and-M) planets. David fully intends 
lo produce other galaxies for future add-ons lo 
the original game. 

When you begin there arc around 100.000 
planets which all have iheir own names and 
details, you must venture out and discover the 
rest for yourself. As well as individual details, 
many of the planets also have individual 
surface detail, so land, oceans, atmosphere and 
so on can be clearly visible from space. 

The vector polygons which make up ihe 
details arc light-sourced. so depending on your 
position and Ihe position of the sun. the planets 
are lit realistically. Also. David has managed 
lo include curved polygons into the game with 
no loss of speed, so spaceships now have 
shapely wings instead of the dart shapes they 
had in Elite, and planets arc elliptical instead 
of perfect spheres. 

The most impressive aspect of the game, 
though, is thai wherever possible, even' detail 
of the known universe is accurately mapped. 
This means that our solar system looks and 
behaves exactly as it does in real-life, and 




As you Hy across the 
Moonbose, the detail of 
Frontier becomes more 
apparent. Notice the 
fire shooting out of the 
chimney stacks, and the 
flat lunar domes in the 
distonce. 



David has researched in detail. Ihe size and 
behaviour of other solar systems and galaxies. 
As well as being a good blast, an intellectual 
trading game, or whatever else you want it (o 
be. Frontier can also be a good teaching aid 
for asironomy - so kids really can leam and 
play a( the same time. Phew! 

So, given all this detail, the number of plan- 
ets, the amount of colours, the sound effects, it 
must take up a huge amount of memory - 
right? Well. no. not at all. Frontier will almost 
certainly be supplied on .1 single disk, and will 
run on every Amiga with at least 1Mb of 
memory -wow! 

David explains: "Most games nowadays 
are less than 50K in size, and the rest is taken 
up with sprites and background graphics. 
People forget (hat there's an enormous amouni 
of space on one floppy disk, and a lot of them 
think thai Ihe number of disks reflect ihe size 
of the game - which just isn'i true. The origi- 
nal Elite was only 22K in total, and that had 
2.000 different planets." 

There has been plcnly of hype over (he 
last year about Frontier, but you can now take 
it from Amiga Format that it's not only as 
impressive to look ai as it has always promised 
to be. but il plays like an absolute dream. This 
is as close to virtual reality as you're going to 
get without putting on a weird helmet. It's big. 
and it really will be on your screen soon! C? 

Frontier - The Sequel To Elite will be released 
b\ Konami in early June. Contact Konami on 
081429 2446.

CYBERPUNK 







Computers have changed the world more than anyone would dare imagine - anyone except authors of 

fiction known as Cyberpunk, who saw technological advancement and social decay coming, years ago! 

Marcus Dyson looks at Cyberpunk's chilling vision of the future in film, music, lifestyle and more... 



-THE FUTURE'S SO bright I gotta wear 
shades." Thus spake the Timbuk 3. although 
we can be sure (hat their intonation was tinged 
with irony, and their tongues were firmly 
implanted within their checks at the time. I 
mean, when did anything ever get better? 
When did unemployment ever go down (with- 
out some new government book cooking 
scheme)? When did pollution ever decrease? 
When did crime figures ever fall, year on 
year? When did our currency ever increase in 
value on the foreign exchange markets? When 
did the cost of living ever go down? 

Oh yes. the future, we've all got to live in 
it... no choice. You're there now, in fact. But 
the way things are going, it may not be the 
shiny Utopia Logan's Run led us to believe. 
Let your imagination free and accompany us 
on a trip into one of many possible futures. 




I woke early to the dull crump of ex- 
plosions - riots in the prole sectors! 1 
expect they'd hacked their way out of 
VR again. No problem. Security 
would quell them in no time. Sure, 
they'd mostly be killed, but it all 
helps the overpopulation problem. 
If only the non-skills would realise 
they are better off in cyberspace than 
here in actual reality, even if they are 
in a limited-pleasure environment. My 
head was thudding from the hours of neu- 
ral jacking and the stimulants I'd done the 
previous day. The sleepless night hadn't 
helped - should'vc remembered lo do some 
downers. I pushed my hand into the SimStim 
recess beneath the sleep notch and felt the 
sting of the needle-less injection. Pain relief 
came quickly. 



Today was not a day to be relished. Today 
I was going to have to go Outside. A capsule 
ma) be perfect, but you can't stay in there all 
your life - not unless you are very lucky, or 
very rich. I gazed out' of my window screen. 
Over the Grand Canyon the sun was rising. It 
was beautifully modelled. Sad to think that the 
Colorado nowadays ran putrid slime through 
this joyous vista. Behind me a blizzard was 
raging on top of Pte Chammoisiere. Through 
the snow. Mi Blanc was just visible in the dis- 
tance. The sun and the snow - I'd always liked 
the contradiction, so much so I paid the extra 
for twin PanaModels. No good putting it off 
any longer. My appointment at Justice Central 
was noon. I had 78 minutes to make surface 
and cover the mile and a half to ComSec pyra- 
mid. It was time to get a move on.

1 found my mask under ihe console, li was 
Stiff from disuse. I hadn't had cause lo go 
Outside for around six years - 1 hadn'l left my 
capsule for seven months, and I didn't particu- 
larly wish to now. 

They did say you could still survive on top 
without a mask, bul I didn'l want lo put the 
theory to the lesi. and surface was no place lo 
get short of breath. Ii was going to be bad 
enough avoiding ihe traffic long enough to 
make il to a cab. never mind struggling for air 
in the middle of a 24 lane highway. Il could be 
dangerous - it was dangerous up there. 

No one knew how many people got in- 
volved in RTAs. bul it was lots. Traffic 
moving al maximum velocity at optimum den- 
sity was difficult lo avoid, and if ihe driver 
WIS asleep it was unlikely he would over-ride 
the TrafficNci. I jacked onto News and down- 
loaded ihe radiation figures. If ihcy were high 
I'd have lo hire a suil before I made lop. They 
weren't. Thanks for small mercies. I hit the 
hatch release and stepped out into ihe corridor. 

It's not a pretty picture, is il? If the future 
really is like thai, wouldn't you want a device 
thai lei you travel, work, socialise, play and 
even have sex Uric recreational rather than pro- 
creaiional variety! all from the safety of your 
own •Capsule'? Of course you would! 

Bul what if we've got it all wrong? What if 
the future is a paradise? What if world peace 
prevails? What if all illness and famine are 
vanquished? What il the quality of broadcast 
TV reaches an acceptable standard? 
Wouldn't you siill want all the benefits of 
a technologically advanced future? 
Wouldn't you still want to be able lo travel, 
work, socialise, play and have sex from \oui 
own home? We would! 

The form of fiction lhai postulates the 
possibility ot a technologically advanced, but 
socially decrepit future is called Cyberpunk. Il 
accepts as inevitable .he effects lhal compute! 
mu\ other technologies will have on our life, 
bul it offers no optimism as lo the effect thev 
will have on society. 

Cyberpunk is the fiction of the future, and 
the culture ot the computer. Computer owners 
urc at the forefront of the movement which 
will become ihe Cyberpunk future. There is no 
place in Cyberspace for those who arc afraid 
Of technology. There is no room tor those who 
cannot program a video recorder. Your Amiga 
is your key to being pan of this future. 

< \lnrpunk as a cultural movement began 
wiih Ihe writings ot William Gibson. Ncuro- 

manctr, Burning Chronic - these novels were 
mcrclv science fiction, written h\ a man who 
had the imagination lo see the Cyberpunk 
future bin not the computer knowledge to cre- 
ate it. Gibson saw a society in the thrall of 
computers - in part run bv computers, a soci- 
ety where the interchange ol data is [be 
yardstick by which civilisation is measured. 
Although the Cyberpunk future is a society 
with all the advantages o\' technology, it is also 
a society of avarice, a society of violence, a 

socictv ol greed. And the outlaws ol this soci- 
ety are the Cyberspace Cowboys, hackers who

Virtual reality 




Virtual reality has caused excitement on many levels. At Its most simple It 
is the interactive video games appearing across the world. W Industries 
machines are a simple, effective application of VR. and fun to play. Best of 
all, their machines are just expanded Amiga 3000s. At the other end of the 
spectrum. VR is a way of offering corporate solutions or military training. 

The concept behind VR is that you model a 3D environment, then place 
the operator inside it. If we accept Cyberspace as the memory of the com- 
puter. VR is a kind of Graphical User Interface for it. The system, at present 
anyway, requires you to wear special apparatus so that the position of your 
body can be detected and input into the computer. Future systems will 
probably involve suits that not only act as input devices, but give feedback 
too. Imagine a shoot-' em- up where if you get hit from behind, your clothing 
applies pressure to the area of your back where you are hit. 

Of course when physical stimuli are concerned. It doesn't take long 
before people start considering sex. and a whole area of VR research is 
devoted to the subject of remote sex. This subject is called Teledildonics. 
Imagine a future where you can have relations with your partner even 
though they are on the other side of the world, or have clean, safe casual 
sex with someone you never even have to meet. The networking charges 
will be paid for in the money you save from not buying your partner drinks. 

Travel is another area that would be revolutionised by VR. Why travel 
when you can just be there' in the comfort ot your own home? Of course 
purists will cry "It's not the same though. Is It?". But Cyberpunk fiction pre- 
dicts a future where VR is not accessed wearing a cumbersome suit, but by 
direct connection of the human neural networks to the computer via elec- 
trodes worn on the body. If that ever happens. VR might not be the same as 
the real thing, but no-one will be able to tell them apart. 

If you think putting a condom on is o chore, wait fill you experience sex in the 
future, this Cyber-sex suit is like wearing one big condom... probably.

Gibson's 
chilling future vision 
has never been so well 
realised as in Ridley

BURNING CHROME, 
THE DIFFERENCE ENGINE 

Al'THOK : WILLIAM <;IBS<>\ 
Gibson is the 
Cyberpunk author. 
It was he who 
coined the term, 
and his stories 
created many of 
the other terms 
and phrases that 
regularly appear in 
Cyberspeak. His 
Cyberspace series 
(Neuromancer, 
Count Zero, Mona 
Lisa Overdrive) 
created the world of Cyberpunk, where 
people no longer look forward to a bright 
future, but are more interested in getting 
what they can out of the present. He's 
recently moved on from Cyberspace with 
his most recent novel The Difference 
Engine, which explores a world where the 
computer age began a hundred years ear- 
lier, through the work of Charles Babbage. 

ACHING ZERO: 

BRYAN (LOt GH & PAUL MUNGO 

There is little fic- 
tion In this book, 
but it's still fun. It 
has been fairly 
well researched, 
from many differ- 
ent archives, and 
deals with the 
exploitation of 
technology for the 
Individual's ends. 
Full of anecdotes 
about real hacking 
cases, but techni- 
cally not demanding and so easy reading. 




Kill IK!) in brick stkri.im; 

A collection of stories by Lewis Shiner, 
Greg Bear. Bruce Sterling and others. Just 
to prove there is more to Cyberpunk than 
Gibson (though he does make an appear- 
ance), a selection of stories which explore 
various other aspects of the ethos. 

THE HACKER CRACKDOWN 

At TIIOK : BRICK STKRLIN(i 
An in-depth exploration of the Hacker phe- 
nomenon, and the backlash by the powers 
that be against it. Sterling looks into the 
motivations and actions of hacking 
groups such as the Phantom Access 
Associates, and the crackdown by the US 
Justice department and Secret Service. 



This is not the 
UK-based music 
magazine, but 
the American 
magazine that's 
In love with tech- 
nology. It's hard 
to get hold of 
over here, but 
the issue we've 
seen has some 
fascinating articles on portable phone 
hackers and the US Army's virtual reality 
war-simulator system. Try asking lor it at 
one of the larger newsagents, and quote 
the ISSN number 1059-1028. 

THE HACKER HUES (COMIC) 

U Rl TKR : LEW IS SHINKR 

Although comms and hacking may not 
appear to be the most visual of subjects, 
Shiner has managed to create an Intrigu- 
ing story about the hacker subculture 
which is absorbing and only vaguely fic- 
tional. Recommended.

Any new area has new words, and Cyberpunk is no exception. Just check out these 
'technical' terms so that you can make yourself understood in the near future.

the terms Cyberpunk and virtual reality were 
not common parlance at the time, the movie is 
undoubtedly set in Cyberspace. An evil artifi- 
cial intelligence draws the protagonist into the 
machine, where he has to do battle in a virtual 
environment. Tron was not a smash hit, but it 
was ahead of its time and could have come 
from the pen of William Gibson himself. 



'Jacking' Into Cyberspace. 

Cracking - Using coding skills to break the protection 
of a database, or software to enable you to get access 
to the data or copy the program. 
Cyberpunk -Technological reactionaries who believe 
In the 'Hacker Ethic' that 'Information wants to be free*. 
Cyberpunks see technology as a way to gain access to 
the information that Is the basis of power. Networks 
open up the power of the centralist elites to anyone 
with an Amiga and a modem - and a good deal of In- 
genuity and patience. 

Cyberpunk is also the term for the fiction of 
William Gibson and those who followed after him. It is 
our fiction, built on the technology of your Amiga and 
the sociology of our present times. It is the first form 
of culture to embrace and worship the technology that 
Is an Intrinsic part of our everyday lives. 



The fictional name for the virtual reality 
world which exists In the networks of all the linked

Hacking - Gaining unauthorised access to a remote 
computer system. 

Jacking -Logging on to Cyberspace; connecting your 
Amiga to another computer system by means of a 
modem and comms software. 
Microsoft! -Software implants on microchip. 
Modem • Short for 'Modulator/Demodulator', a device 
that enables computers to 'talk' to one another via the 
telephone network. 

Phreaking -Gaining telephone services for free. 
Virtual Reality - A three-dimensional environment 
created within the computer which it is possible to 
'jack' Into and interact with In the same way that one 
interacts with the real world (or at least very similar 
ways). Virtual Reality is the Graphical User Interface of

use iheir computers lo jack in lo the vast 
global network of computer systems. Does this 
sound a lot like the late 20th century to you? It 
is! Read on... 

In the early Sixties, several technically 
capable, socially tuned-in American youths 
discovered that the Bell telephone company 
controlled the routing and billing of telephone 
calls using a series of audible tones of specific 
frequencies. It took no time for these young- 
sters to find a way of building 'blue boxes" 
that replicated those tones, and soon it was 
common for the American student in posses- 
sion of one of these 'blue boxes' lo be able to 
make telephone calls anywhere in the country 
without paying for the privilege. The people 
who understood and exploited this technique 
were called 'phone phreakers'. They were the 
first hackers, the first individuals to ever gain 
unauthorised access to a remote computer sys- 
tem. They didn't know it, but they had just 
invented Cyberpunk. They had just changed 
the course of the future of the human race. 

The idea of linked computer networks is 
central to Cyberpunk fiction, and since the 
early Sixties the world has become a bigger 
and more convoluted computer network. 
Thousands of independent and local networks 
are connected to hundreds of national net- 
works, which are in turn linked to dozens of 
global networks. Together they all make the 
Worldnct'. the real-life Cyberspace. With the 
right security clearance an Amiga owner 
can wander to any country and talk to any 
networked computer user. The Amiga is 
no slouch when it comes to comms - in 
fact the first-ever conviction for hacking 
was made against an Amiga owner (see the 
boxout on this page titled 'Datacrime'). 

Hackers, or at least some of them, believe in 
a 'hacker ethic*, based on the principle that 
'Information wants to be free". They believe 
that access to any information stored on a 
computer network should be granted to all 
who have the technology to obtain it. Their 
ethic extended to say that it was all right to 
look, but not to touch. Hackers were pioneers 
at the technological cutting edge. Interest, not 
avarice, was their motivation. Discovery, not 
destruction, was their goal. 

At first the law was in no position to pre- 
vent unauthorised computer access. And it's 
hard to find evidence of having been hacked, 
especially by a competent hacker, especially 
when you're not looking for it. SysOps (the 
custodians of a network) were not expecting 
visitors, and at first visitors were uncommon. 
Early hackers needed access to a networked 
computer system, and in those days that was a 
mainframe or 'mini' computer. (Don't get con- 
fused by the name - minis wouldn't fit on a 
desktop, they fill an entire room.) The real rev- 
olution in hacking came with the invention of 
the micro computer, and of course the modem. 

Nowadays Cyberpunk has become a full- 
blown cultural phenomenon - in books, films, 
magazines, computer programs, even night- 
clubs. Born of computer technology, it feeds 
on that technology in a never-ending spiral, 
onwards and upwards into a future so bright 



Datacrime 

The Mad Hacker'. Nick Whitely, had a problem. He just 
couldn't leave ICL mainframe computers alone. It wasn't 
enough to work in the day, making sure there was 
enough magnetic tape and paper for the printers. He 
wanted to get In the driving seat and explore. 

Trouble is. ICLs (the small UK equivalent of 
IBMs) cost lots - E1 million for the top-of-the-range 
3980. used by many universities and believed to be 
used in government Intelligence systems. So Whitely 
used his Amiga A 1000. a relatively slow modem, and 
The Hacker's Handbook to start going through JANET, 
the gateway system used by research establishments. 

He did it too. And a lot of experience from his don- 
key work during the day helped him on his nocturnal 
ICL expeditions. There are three reasons for hackers 
working at night: the phone calls are cheaper; the 
phone lines are less busy and quieter; and the target 
computers are unmanned. 

Until 1985. Scotland Yards Computer Crime Unit 
consisted of just one officer. Even at the time of the 
Mad Hacker's runs, just four officers were trying to 
combat the datacrime of a whole industrialised nation. 
However, the fact that ICLs - the machines possibly 
used in top-secret government systems - were being 
systematically broken open sent alarm bells ringing in 
high places. The Mad Hacker never targeted these sen- 
sitive systems, though it is possible that he intended to. 

After Whitely had been hacking six months, an 
arrest team of 40 police officers and specialists 
knocked on his front door with a warrant. At that time 




The Lawnmower mon ends with Jobe hacking everything, big 
deal! It seems real life hackers already have. 

(pre '90) hacking wasn't illegal. He was charged with 
criminal damage, relating to the time that his ICL targets 
took to be brought online after he (rarely) crashed them. 

But ICLs are expensive - the figures involved were 
over £25,000. After a two-year court case, Nick was 
found guilty on four lesser counts relating to disk dam- 
age. He was sentenced to a year in prison, but only 
served two months in Brixton and Wandsworth. His 
case almost certainly brought about the criminalisation 
of hacking - in the "Computer Misuse Act" of 1990. 

More recently, Paul Bedworth was charged with

technological enter- 
tainment have been 
spawned by Cyber- 
punk, including 
Virtual Reality, 
Quazarand data 

bases linked into 

a network not 

loo lar removed 

from Gibson's 

Cyberspace. 

but in facl the 

Cyberpunk 

fashion subculture 

goes further than merely giving us 

more high-tech toys to play with. 

There are conflicting ideas about Cyber- 
punk fashion. On the one hand those involved 
in haute-couturc have taken the technological 
ideology literally, producing dresses and other 
clothing incorporating silicon chips. PCBs and 
wires. These seem lo be a glamourised view of 
the ethos, with models wandering around look- 
ing like extras from a dodgy sci-fi film. 

The other side of Cyberpunk was first felt 
in Ridley Scott's films Alien and Math' Run- 
ner. Although these appeared before Gibson 
coined the term, they show a future where 
technology has advanced in all manner o! 
ways but the degeneration of lifestyles in the 
late 20lh century has continued: buildings are 
run down; din. smog and grime fill the streets 
and many people find themselves in a struggle 
between humanity and machinery. 



This side of Cyberpunk fashion is accord- 
ingly ageressive-looking, elucd-up and ready 
to abuse the technology any way it sees fit. 
Cybcrpunks often have harsh hairstyles (either 
severe crew-cuts or long thrash-freak locks). 
leather jackets, militaristic footwear and 
adornments such as industrial band logos, 
metallic badges, bondage straps, earrings and 
futuristic sunglasses. All these elements go 
together (with B touch of that 'distressed' look 
- ripped leans, beaten-up boots and jackets, 
stubblei to make a harsh-looking yet somehow 
futuristic persona, balancing industry, technol- 
ogy, military and human struggles. 

For real Cybcrpunks. everything they do has 
roots in ihe Cyberpunk ethos - the music they 
listen to, their work, their hobbies, all reflect 
both the technology of the future and the de- 
cline of the Western world. This is obvious in 
the music also known as hard-beat, heavy 
techno (before the dance market usurped the 
lemi) or industrial. It has a very technological 
sound - sequencers, synthesizers, samplers, 
computers and so on - but the same could be 
s;iid for modem dance music. The thing about 
Cyberpunk music is its aggressive, industrial 
sound; a hammering beat, powerful rapid-fire 
hasshne. and often a harsh, angry-sounding 
vocal and cut-up film and radio voices. 

Belgium's Front 242 were one of the first 
hands that fit into the style: their singles Head- 
hunter, Never Slop and Masierhit all have a 
VCT) precise futuristic edge, but with a dark 
and violent colouring. Two Canadian bands

obtaining telecommunication services 
dishonestly, conspiracy to cause unautho- 
rised modification in computer material 
and conspiracy to secure unauthorised 
access to computer material, after Leeds 
University began monitoring their lines as 
a result of excessive hacker activity. Bed- 
worth was acquitted after his brief offered 
a plea of addiction to hacking. The verdict 
Is a cause of some concern to network 
administrators, as it seems to give a green 
light to unauthorised computer access. 

Whether we as a magazine choose to 
endorse the hacker ethic or not - and we 
cannot be seen to Incite hacking - every- 
one must be aware of the dangers. 
Stealthy as any hacker may be, completely 
undetectable entry Into a remote computer 
Is impossible. As Intruders make their first 
tentative steps around the system, they 
may cause inadvertent fatal damage. 
Remember how many important systems 
depend on computer control. Imagine acci- 
dentally deleting patient drug records in a 
hospital computer, for example. 

The moral is: If you must hack, tread 
lightly. If hackers really do want to present 
themselves as 'techno-anarchists*. they 
must remember that anarchy calls for 
decentralisation of authority without get- 
ting in anyone else's face, much less 
causing death or injury.

Cyber games 



With Cyberpunks direct relationship to computers, it's not surprising that there are 
several Amiga games with Cyber references. Here we look at five games containing 
elements of the Cyberpunk ethos, combining robots, computers and humans... 




CYBER RACE 
CYBERDREAMS 

After commis- 
sioning Alien's 
H R Giger himself 
to create the art- 
work for their 
first game. Dark 
Seed (AF44- 72 
per cent), Cyber- 
d reams' next 
game will be 
Cyber Race. The 
big name associ- 
ated with this 
game is Syd Mead, the industrial designer' noted for 
his work on major films such as Blade Runner. 2010. 
Aliens and Tron. 

The game will be based on a futuristic racing cir- 
cuit, where the finest drivers from across the galaxy 
compete in a race to the death. Professional actors are 
to be incorporated into the game using full-motion 
digitisation, and digitised speech and sound effects 
will be used throughout the game. 

Cyber Race is due to be released in September 
this year. Contact Cyberdreams on 071-328 3267. 



So you think you ton win the Cyber 
Race? This chap certainly did... 




Don a head-up display and lock your- 
self into this grid with Cyberspace. 




BNTO KI AINMKN I INTERNATIONAL 

Also due to be 
released soon, 
Cyberspace is a 
futuristic RPG 
based around a 
huge virtual city 
created within 
the Amiga, with 
no less than 
100,000 buildings 
and over 1 mil- 
lion inhabitants. 
You view the 

world trom a first-person perspective view, through a 
Head-Up-Display on your Amiga monitor screen. The 
Cyber connections are further complicated by the 
addition of Cyberspace, a large computer based within 
the virtual city, which you can log into and enter 
Cyberspace itself. Phew! 

Sound complicated? Well, add into that the 
promise that the game will let you take virtually any 
role in the game that you could take in real life, such 
as private eye, courier or street fighter, and you have 
one heck of a big game. 

It's due for release in September, but before then 
you can contact El on 0268 541 1 26. 



BENEATH A STEEL SKY 
VIRGIN 




The artist famous for the graphic novel 
Watchmen drew this futuristic scene. 



Revolution Soft- 
ware, who were 
made famous by 
their graphic ad- 
venture Lure of 
the Temptress 
(AF36 - 92 per 
cent), are set to 
return with a new 
cyber-ad venture 
called Beneath a 
Steel Sky. It's the 
story of a man, 



Robert Foster, who is kidnapped and taken to a 
strange Cyberpunk-style world, controlled by a com- 
puter called LINC. You must help him find his own 
identity, and the secrets hidden in the world. 

For the new game Revolution have teamed up with 
Dave Gibbons, the acclaimed comic-book artist and 
author whose most famous work. Watchmen, won him 
a Hugo Award. He'll be providing lots of comic-style 
artwork for the game. It'll be out in late summer, but 
contact Virgin on 081 960 2255 for further details. 



ISI.'Ol .11/1)1 I HUM 




Don't be fooled by oil this jungle scenery. Flashback is defi- 
nitely Cyberpunk - check out the mutant with the gun. 

Flashback (AFA5 - 93 per cent) is the latest game to be 
released by Delphfne Software, previously responsible 
for the smash hit Another World (AF&\ - 82 per cent). 
That game had really fluid animation, but no depth to 
the gameplay. Flashback is a huge arcade adventure, 
for which real-life actors were filmed performing vari- 
ous movements, then incorporated into the gameplay. 

The game is set in the future on another planet, 
where the main character has had his mind erased and 
must locate his friends and escape. The plot borrows 
some ideas from many films, including Total Recall, 
The Terminator - In fact, lots of Arnold S movies. It's 
got an incredible futuristic feel', brilliant animation, 
and a whole host of robots, droids and mutant crea- 
tures to blow away with your weapon.

ELECTRONIC ARTS 

Ah, of course, 
the most obvious 
one. The year is 
2058, and tech- 
nology has been 
advancing at 
such a rate that 
everybody is now 
linked into a 
single vast com- 
puter network. 
You play a down- 
and-out cowboy 
(21st century hacker) who has lost access to the net- 
work (Cyberspace), has no money and seemingly no 
future. You must try to get back into the Cyberspace 
network, and regain credibility as a cowboy again. 
Neuromancer is based on the William Gibson 
book of the same name, and it achieved 81 per cent

MORPHING 





o Morphing is THE technique of the moment, but how does it work and once the novelty has worn off, 
^ how much use is it? Brian Lark man and his ever-changing images, studies a new science... 




I MIL A KKW monlhs ago. only music - 
video and Schwarzenegger fans had even 
heard of morphing lei alone seen il in action. 
Then Mel Smilh warped into Kale Adie and 
the whole country was treated to the latest 
gimmick in the computer graphics hum-bag 
of tricks. So far. most of the broadcast 
uses of morphing have been carried out on 
expensive high-end systems but. as readers 
of Amiga i' or mat will know, morphing 
software has been available on the Amiga 
foi almost .1 sear. BlackBelt's ImageMaster 
came firs! with .1 simple morphing module, 
followed by ASDG's MorphPlus and now 
GVP'a CtneMorph, To understand the basics 
of how morphing works, perhaps we should 
took .11 some earlier Amiga programs that give 
hint-- ot what is |o come. 




Of all graphical tricks, morphing is perhaps 
the one that just had to wait until computers 
with sufficient power came along. Right from 
the early days, the Amiga has had software 
that could transform one simple object into 
another, supplying all of the in-between 
stages or 'tweens*. Aegis Animator, the 
first Amiga animation program, allowed 
vectored' 2D objects to transform 
between a start and end form, though 
the in-betweens could be pretty bizarre to 
the inexperienced! FantaVtsum. produced a 
couple of years later, developed the same idea 
and made it work superbly. 

Both programs use flat 2D objects similar 
to those you might draw using ProDraw - start 
and end shapes defined by co-ordinates and 
vectors rather than bitmaps. When you set the 



animation going, the computer fills in all of 
the in-between shapes b\ stretching the initial 
shape as if il were a rubber sheet, moving the 
points and lines of the outline bit-by-bit in 
each frame. 

Taken into true 3D. pa>grams like 
Stnlpt3D could do similar tricks, but with real- 
istic shading and materials. The trouble was 
that, at the time, objects like a human face 
were loo complex lo model convincingly in 
this way. using the standard 6K0(X)-hased 
Amiga. Even with the faster machines and 
powerful modelling and texture mapping soft- 
ware available now. truly realistic morphing of 
organic objects like the human head is very 
difficult. The answer is to use bitmap images 
scanned from real life (or photographs!.

UJ 



Several methods can be used lo transform 
one bitmapped image to another. The obvious 
technique is cross-fading. Stated simply, you 
just fade each pixel of one image to the colour 
of the corresponding pixels in the other image. 
Film and TV use this method so often that you 
don't even notice, so something more is 
needed i" produce a dramatic transformation. 

Deluxe Paint IV can Tween from one brush 
to another, fading colours and changing the 
shape of the outlines at the same lime. If the 
two brushes are reasonably simple the change 
is quite effective, but complex realistic 
bitmaps distort dramatically into weird 
abstract shapes during the twecning. This can 
be overcome with much tighter control of the 
warping inside the area of the brush. Programs 
like Im,n:.'\tii\tn\ Morph Plus and ImageFX 
can indeed control distortion over the whole 
area of an image using an extension of the rub- 
ber sheet idea mentioned earlier. (No. of 
course its not an obsession!!) 

Imagine an image of a tiger's head printed on 
to a rubber sheet. Key points on the face - 
around the eyes, mouth and jaw for instance - 
arc caught by a stitch of thread. By carefully 
pulling these threads the face could be warped 
out of shape. The elasticity of the sheet would 
mean that the area around the changed bus 
would stretch smoothly, the distortion gradu- 
ally tailing off further from the 'stitch' point. 

In both MorphPlus and ImageFX. a single 
image can be warped in this way by setting a 
series of points on an image and moving them. 
Working with two images however, so that 
points on one can be matched with suitable 
positions on the other, the first shape can be 
made to warp smoothly into the form of the 
second. It only requires cross-fading to take 
place at the same time and true cinematic 
polymorphing occurs... we have morphing. 

Morphing has been used predominantly 
with the human face and body, because these 
subjects give the most stunning and impressive 
effects. ASDG have managed to get their 
MorphPlus software into cinematic post pro- 
duction houses, and several of the effects used 
in this new Wamer TV series Babylon 5 are 
done using the software. It is another string to 
the Amiga's bow that broadcast television 
companies (as opposed to cable who ^) BIKl 
large have lower production values) arc 
accepting it as a professional tool, and a way 
of saving on the high cost of graphic-worksta- 
tion operator's time. 

As with all fashions, the need for this sort 
of visual trickery will fade away or transform 
into some other amazing effect. But as with a 
workman's tool, when he first gets it he may 
use it all the time, but once he tires of it. it is 
always there in his toolbox should the need for 
it arise. Personally I will be glad when TV 
adverts stop featuring bags of washing powder 
changing into girlies with perfectly condi- 
tioned hair. In the meantime, the tools evolved 
for morphing faces can be used to transform 
many other things - imagine a building or nat- 
ural landscape swelling and metamorphosing 
into a new or alien environment. The tools are 
already here on the Amiga. So all it needs is 
your imagination. O 



MorphPlus 



ASDG ■ £199.99 




As you are always morphing between 
two images, all morph modules described 
here need lo use a two screen interface. 
MorphPlus however is unique in using on 
'onion skin' system - superimposing the 
two images using o vorioble level of 
cross fade. A slider to control the per- 
centage plus brightness and contrast 
sliders for source and destination ensure 
exact fine tuning. This approach meons 
that the whole screen can be used for 
fine detail * useful when you ore using 
lots of points. In MorphPlus, single 
images can be warped, ond pairs of still 
images, or sequences of moving source 
and destination images can be mor phed. 



Available from DM107 S3 666000 



CineMorph 



Great Valley Products ■ £99.95 




CineMorph comes as a stand-alone pock* 
age or as o 'hook' or module to be used 
within ImageFX. It is designed, like 
MorphPlus, for use by film ond television 
professionals. Single image warps, dual 
image morphs, and full motion sequence 
morphs are all provided. It uses a two 
window interface, like ImageMaster, but 
the windows can be resized and over* 
lapped. Used with ImageFX it has a zoom 
mode and a number of other extra facili- 
ties like variable file types and image 
processing that are not available on the 
stand alone version. 



Available from Silica 081 3091111 



ImageMaster 




Black Belt ■ £1 75 



The first Amiga program to do proper 
morphing was ImageMoHcr (rom Block 
Belt. Choosing Special from the 
Composing Panel leads you to the 
Morphing module. This is laid out as two 
windows side-by-side, one lor the source 
pkfure (the Primary buffer) and the 
other for the destination (the Secondary 
buffer). A band of text buttons provide 
the few tools that are available - odd, 
move and delete points etc 



Available from Black Belt 
0101-406 3675513 



MORPHING 






With pro<fke this type of morph is as easy to stt up as that in ImageMaster, but is mo<h more flexible and powerful. Overall ASDG's 
MorphPlus is the best available. 



In MorphPlus points are added in the lorm of vec- 
tors; one end marks the source Image, the other the 
destination. Each new point places another vector 
parallel to the previous one, and each end can be 
selected and moved independently or together. 
Each vector can be linked to the next by an edge so 
that smooth warps can be produced, with (ewer 
points. Source or destination points can be hidden 
and the lade slider adjusted for fine detail work on 
one image. A zoom facility helps this process 



greatly. Sets of points - those around each eye for 
instance - can be grouped independently, saved, 
moved, hidden or deleted. If moving Images 
(sequences) are morphing, each group can use its 
own set of tweentng frames and use different trans- 
parency curves to control the cross fading. You can 
even use an animated set of images as an Alpha 
channel to control the transparency. This means 
that different parts of a moving image can morph at 
different rates! 



The numerous options and tools provided by 
MorphPlus mean that it Is a much more complex 
program to learn than ImageMaster's morph mod- 
ule. The basic method of setting out points and 
vectors is quite simple to use however, and very 
powerful. Although none of the programs could be 
tested with moving images, MorphPlus seems to 
have the most comprehensive set of tools for han- 
dling sequences. 






These were produced using the mesh set-up that came with the program so they look quite good. When I tried to repeat This Tiger-Woman morph Image has 
this with the tiger and woman, I produced a much messier morph. ClneMorph takes practice. been created in ClneMorph. 



Setting the points for warping in ClneMorph is radi- 
cally different from the other morphing programs, 
using a grid overlay with a point at each intersec- 
tion. If you have used a point or vector systems, the 
grid seems difficult at first. Once you realise the 
technique it is reasonably efficient, but never as 
intuitive as vectors. There is a choice ol lines link- 
ing the points, or bezier curves passing through 
them. The beziers give a smoother warp but are 
much more difficult to set up. 

Individual points can be selected and moved in 
either window in much the same way as In the other 



two programs but because there are so many points 
on screen right from the start, it is quite difficult to 
arrange them carefully where you want them. 
Horizontal rows and vertical columns of points can 
be added and deleted, and moved as one. This 
enables bunches of lines to be built up around 
important features like eyes and mouth. Groups of 
points can also be multiple selected and moved. 
Overall though, having so many points to move 
makes the system a bit clumsy. This Is reflected In 
the wavy lines in the Tiger-Woman picture shown 
here. With practice, a better image could have been 



produced but the time taken to set up this morph 
was about the same as the other two - ImageMaster 
and MorphPlus - which gave better morphs. 

Aside from the method of setting points, 
ClneMorph seems to provide broadly the same level 
of functions as MorphPlus. Sequences of moving 
images can be morphed and automatic tweening 
can be used to save work. If the moving images 
change greatly, key tweens can be chosen and set 
up accordingly. Dissolve (cross-fade) and tweening 
curves can be set up to vary the rate of morphing 
for different groups of points. 




m 





These are the original morphs made with ImageMaster before I realised how important it was to have similar backgrounds, This Tiger-Woman morph image was 
and the same orientation of the faces. created In ImageMaster. 



Setting up the morphing points Is simple enough. 
Placing a point on the source screen (at the corner 
of the tiger's left eye perhaps) produces a matching 
point on the destination screen. This can be moved 
to the corresponding point (the corner of the 
woman's eye). Gradually a set of points can be set 
up that can be saved to disk, (but not grouped or 
multiple selected). All edges can be pinned down' 
with points if you want. As a check, a single image 



can be rendered, or the whole sequence. During 
rendering a third window shows the path of each 
point but unfortunately, this cannot be edited. 
ARexx scripts can be run before or after rendering 
each frame so ImageMaster's processing tools can 
all be used. 

The version of ImageMaster used for this 
comparison can only morph between pairs of still 
images, not moving frames, and unfortunately there 



Is no zoom mode. (But it may well have been 
upgraded since last summer, when we last reviewed 
it AF27. A new version of the whole ImageMaster 
system is close to completion that promises to be 
stunning, Including a much more Intuitive inter- 
face). Compared with MorphPlus and ImageFX, 
ImageMaster Is simple but quite intuitive. Coming 
back to it after eight months it was easy to use with- 
out even looking at the manual.

INTERNAL HARD DRIVES (Ti 







With the arrival of the Al 200 or A600 you 

can now have your hard drive on the 

inside of your Amiga. Richard Baguley 

tells you how to go about having a hard 
disk fitted, either professionally or DIY... 





HARD DISKS ARE truly lovely things. Just 
imagine it. all the information on your piles of 
disks, stuffed inside your machine, and acces- 
sible in a fraction of a second. No more 
tiresome disk swapping while playing M<mkt\ 
Island 2, juggling four different disks on 
Wordworth, and no painful waiting around 
while you load your latest animation into 
DPatlJi IV. What more could you ask for? 

A hard disk is like a big floppy disk which 
is stuck permanently inside the computer. 
Since it's not removable, you can get lo the 
data faster, and read or write to it at a much 
higher speed than with floppies. With the 
design of the A600 and A 1200. Commodore 
have used 2.5-inch hard disks instead of the 
more common 35-inch disks, which are used 
in most of the external hard disk drives on ear- 
lier Amigas and in other types of computer. 
They also have used hard disks that use the 
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) type of 
interlace instead of the more complex, but 
faster SCSI (Small Computer Systems 
Interface) type. 

With IDE drives, most of the circuitry that 
controls the drive is built into the drive itself, 
so the computer side of things is less complex. 
This means that Commodore are able lo fit the 
interface on lo the main printed circuit board 
of the Amiga, without the need for any exira 
add on cards or boxes, unlike earlier Amiga 



A selection of the 2.5 

inch hard disks used in 

the A1200ond A600. 

These are available in 

sizes of between 

20 and 1 70 Mb 




The hard disk on an 
A600 fits in roughly 
ihe some place as that 
on a A 1200. 



models. These 2.5-inch disks are more expen- 
sive, but arc smaller and use less power. 
They're more commonly used in portable PCs 
where space and weight is al a premium. They 
come in sizes of between approximately 20 
and 170 Mb. which is roughly equivalent to 

between 23 and 175 
floppy disks. 

If you're going to 
add a hard disk to 
your Amiga, the nec- 
essarv circuitry is 
already built into the 
Amiga, so all you 
need to do is 111 the disk lo the cradle included 
with your Amiga, and conned the disk and ihe 
Amiga together using a short cable. 

Several companies are selling kits thai 
include all you need to fit the hard disk your- 
self. Since ihis involves opening your 
computer and breaking the warranty seal, your 
guarantee will be invalid. So, if a few days 



* Companies are selling DIY hard 
disk kits -only buy one if you're 
familiar with the Amiga because 
you could lose your warranty* 



after fitting the drive, smoke begins to pour 
out of it. don"t bother ringing Wang because 
ihey won'l send anybody round. 

If you're determined lo III a drive yourself. 
then actually fitting it is not difficult, and 
shouldn't take you more than 10 to 15 min- 
utes. All that you need to do is open the 
machine, fit the drive into the cradle which 
comes fitted to your Amiga, connecting the 
hard disk to the computer with the cable that 
should be supplied, and replace the lid. All 
the kils cither include software for you to for- 
mat the hard disk and install the Workbench 
programs, or are already prepared with 
Workbench installed. 

1 wouldn't recommend you fit your own 
disk unless you're reasonably familiar with the 
innards of Ihe Amiga, and don't mind losing 
youi guarantee, Given thai you don'l mind los- 
ing it. il's not a difficult procedure. See over 
the page for an illustrated guide to doing it 




I VE GOT THEM WARRANTY BLUES 



The situation with what happens to the 
warranty on your A1200 when a hard disk 
is fitted is somewhat confusing to say the 
least. The official Commodore policy is 
that only two companies are authorised by 
them to lit hard drives to Amigas. 

The companies who have official 
licences are ZCL (who supply the Calculus 
chain) and Silica Systems. So, if you pur- 
chase an A1200 with a hard disk from 
either of these companies or get one of 
them to fit one. your on-site maintenance 
from Wang will not be affected. Your 
machine will be fitted with a new warranty 



sticker which identifies it as an official 
upgrade. If you purchase a new Amiga 
with a hard disk or get one fitted by 
another company, the on-site warranty is 
invalidated, and the it then becomes the 
responsibility of the company who fitted 
the drive. 

If you use a kit to fit your own disk, 
you will also lose your warranty. There are 
rumours that Wang will service machines 
that have been opened if the problem isn't 
connected with the hard drive, but we've 
not been able to confirm this, so even if 
you've heard similar, don't rely on it. 



fJh INTERNAL HARD DRIVES 




yourself. On ihc ngnl here there's a table giv- 
ing all of the prices that we could gel hold of 

If you've alreads installed a disk yourself 
and arc worried about what happens if there's 
a problem with cither the disk or your com- 
puter, Trilogic have iniroduced a scheme 
where you can purchase an extra two 01 ihuv 
years' warranty, even if you've fitted a drive 
usiny one of these kits. An extra three years 
rcturn-to-basc warranty on a 1200 with an SO 
Mb hard disk costs £67.99, assuming that the 
Amiga is in full work mi: order when you take 
out the insurance. (Trilogic 0274 691 1 15. ) 

It is possible to gel hold of the bare drives 
from the suppliers or manufacturers, but these 
should be approached with extreme caution. 
Not all 2.5-inch IDE drives will work with the 
IDE interface built into the Amiga, so ensure 
that (he model has been tested before you buy. 



The cables for connecting the disk to the 
Amiga arc also difficult to get hold of, so 
make sure that you can get hold of them before 
purchasing. You will also need some software 
to prepare and install the disk, although fortu- 
naiels Mkiobotics have recently made their 
RDPrep software generally available.. 

1 he other alternative i> to get one fitted by a 
professional. iSee below left 'Warranty Blues' 
for the full story.) At the moment there are 
only two companies with Commodore approval: 
Silica Distribution, who will be selling their kii 
on 10 dealers, and ZCL. who will be carrying 
out this service through their Calculus stores. 
Other companies are offering a disk-fitting ser- 
vice, but once they've fitted the drive, the 
Commodore on-site warranty is invalidated. 

Most of these companies are including a 
return -to- base warranty, which means that in 
order to get the machine repaired you either 
have to send the machine back to them or ring 
them to get a courier to pick it up. but you 
should check the exact details of this warranty 
before purchasing. £> 



IDE RATHER USE 
SCSI, YOU KNOW 

When the A1200 was first released, many 
people were disappointed to see that 
Commodore had chosen to use IDE 
drives, because users had been hoping 
lor the faster and more expandable SCSI 
(Small Computer Systems Interface) type 
instead. SCSI disks are slightly more 
expensive, but can transfer data faster, 
and you can connect up to eight drives 
and other devices. It's also possible to 
control other peripherals such as tape 
streamers, scanners and very large hard 
disks via this type ol Interlace. If you're 
running software that will use It. 

GVP have recently announced that 
they will be releasing a SCSI interface for 
the A1200 which fits in the trapdoor on 
the underside of the machine, which will 
Include a maths co-processor and a slot 
for extra 32-bit memory. Prices have not 
yet been confirmed, but the model with a 
16 Mhz 68862 will retail for around £299. 



MORE DISK, MORE POWER, BUT FOR LESS MONEY 



Recently, a company called Software Demon have 
started fitting drives which are significantly 
cheaper than the usual 2.5-inch models. This is 
because they are using 3.5-inch disks, as used in 
PCs and expansions for earlier Amiga models. 

Neither the A1200 or A600 is designed to take 
one of these larger disks, but Software Demon 
have managed to squeeze one in. It's a tight fit, but 
It works. The bigger drives use more power than 
the 2.5-inch ones, so they've had to take the power 
from the floppy drive supply. Fortunately, modern 
drives don't require much power, and the model 
we've looked at doesn't seem to have any prob- 
lems with power supply. It is fitted with a 240 Mb 
drive, which is almost twice the size of the biggest 
2.5-inch disk available. This is very fast, with a data 
transfer rate of over 1.3Mb per second, against a 
typical 0.6Mb per second for a 2.5-Inch drive. 



In order to fit the disk, Software Demon have 
cut two holes in the shielding, and the drive is fit- 
ted on to this by a couple of screws. Thus, if you 
want to remove or replace the drive, you'll need to 
take the whole thing apart. If you're anything like 
me, you'll end up bleeding all over it when you 
slice your finger open on the shielding. 

It's a rather tight squeeze when closing the 
case, and the keyboard presses down on the drive, 
which in turn presses down on the shielding. This 
doesn't actually touch any of the circuitry, but it 
does get pretty close. This doesn't seem to be a 
problem, but If at any point in the future. 
Commodore alter the layout ot the motherboard or 
bring out any daughterboards, this could be a 
problem. Prices begin at £199 for 85 Mb and go up 
to £599 for a 426 Mb drive, inclusive ot fitting and a 
year's warranty.

Remove the cradle from 
the Amiga, and screw the 
hard disk lo it as shown 
here. It's important that 
c^eajfl ».\ you do get it the right 

way around. 

Attach the cable to the 
disk if it's not already fit- 
ted. On the disk there will 
be too many pins for the 
cable, but the separate 
block of six or eight can be 
ignored, because these arc 

for setting various options to do with the drive. Connect the cable to the two rows of 

20. making sure that no pins are bent. 








UJ 




Connect the cable socket to 
the pins on the mother- 
board by applying firm 
pressure until it fits cor- 
rectly. Make sure that no 
pins protrude from either 
side of the plug block, and 
thai none of the pins have 
been bent bv the socket. 




Put the drive and cradle 
back into the computer, 
with the cable facing to the 
left and the highest L- 
shaped part of the cradle to 
the rear. Once the case is 
put back together, these 
will hold ihe cradle steady 
against the case. 



Replace the lid. and screw it back in. Reconnect your Amiga, and turn it on. 
When you turn the computer on. you should hear a whirring noise, which is the hard 
disk starting up. If it doesn't seem to be working, open the machine again and check 
the connections between the disk and the Amiga. Try Removing the disk and refu- 
ting the cable, ensuring thai it fits firmly into both the disk, and the Amiga. 

If the disk is pre -format ted by the company you bought the disk from, it should 
boot up into Workbench.

If you've bought a do it yourself hard disk kit and the for-

like to hear from you.... 



it's recentty come to 
light that some dis- 
tributors have been 
sending out copies 
of Ihe HDToolbox 
program that was 
supplied with Ihe 
A4000. which is a 
copyrighted pro- 
gram. According lo 
Commodore, any- 
body found doing so 
may be subject lo 
legal action. 

However, on a 
slightly more cheer- 
ful note, Mlcrobotics 



have decided to make their hard disk preparation and formatting software 
RDPrep available to everyone. Although It's nol Public Domain, any dealer or 
Amiga user can still copy and use this software, as long as it's not altered in 
any way. This means that it's now more of a practical possibility lo get hold 
of a drive, install it and actually be able to use it.

SCREENPLAY INTRO 



YOU CAN RELY ON US 

Amiga Format reviews. What is it 
that makes them so special? 
Andy Nuttall explains 

You probably already know that Amiga format 
Is the biggest-selling Amiga magazine in the 
world. We've achieved this by offering you. the 
reader what we feel *r* the most authoritative 
reviews to be found anywhere. This view is con* 
sistently supported by the major software 
distributors, who refer to our reviews before 
deciding how many games to buy. 

We've all been in your situation before, and 
been caught out by buying poor-quality games. 
How though, we're in a situation where we can 
advise you which games are worth buying, and 
which games aren't worth the plastic they're 
stored on. If we manage to stop just one of you 
wasting your money, then we feel that our job 
is worthwhile. 

We have four golden rules which we stick 
to like glue: 

(A) If a game's not finished it doesn't get 
reviewed. 

(B) If it's crap, we say it's crap - and it doesn't 
matter what the softies think of us. 

(C) We have never, and we will never, review a 
game 'on-site*. 

(D) If we're forced to take sides, it's always 
your side we take. 



THE REVIEW CREW 

Spring is here once again. And what 
are our cheery reviewers looking for- 
ward to? 

AMANDA DYSON 

"Going for drives in my convertible with my hub- 
bie, and the wind blowing through our hair - well 
my hair, he hasn't really got much left." 

JAMES LEACH 

Tm off to the Lake district with my dog, oh and 
my girlfriend - I'm forever getting them muddled 
up you know." 

SARAH TANSER 

"I went to the cinema, and there was a couple 
tickling tonsils in the seats in front. He was bald, 
but you know what they say about bald men - 
they don't need to use combs, apparently." 



CLARE HODGSON 

"I'm looking forward to moving into my new 
Barratt house, apparently it's a limited edition - I 
understand there's only 4,000 others like it on the 
whole estate!" 

PAT MCDONAL D 

"If there's one thing I like to do it's get up early 
in the morning, before the sun rises. Once I'm up. 
I go to the toilet, then get back in bed again." 

RICHARD BAGULEY 

"I like to sing and dance and wave bits of paper 
in the air, before rushing out and washing my 
hair in the nearest country rain barrel." 



A1200 COMPATIBILITY 

The Amiga 1200 has been out for a few 

months now, and we reckon that anybody 

producing games now would be pretty mad 

to release a game that wasn't compatible. 

Because of this, we will only inform you 

if a game is NOT A1200 compatible. We will, 

of course, test every game on the A1200, so 

you can rely on our judgement. If you see the 

logo, it won't work. 




Spring is in the air, the birds are singing in the trees, the sun 

is shining - and what are the Amiga Format reviewers 

doing? Sitting in a dark, cold office, playing games, because 

they know what's good for them. And they've been playing... 



WAKE UP! TIME TO PLAY... 




B-17 Flying Fortress 

It's deep, it's meaningful, and it's on your screen 
now. MicroProse have promised that B-17 is going 
to be the definitive Amiga flight sim - but how 
close is that to the truth? Well, you'll just have to 
turn to... Page 76 




Son of Chuck 

Chuck Rock, the character with an extremely 
prominent stomach, made it big in 1991 in his 
own game. Now he's been kidnapped, and it's up 
to his offspring to set him free. Page 80 



Lemmings 2 



Ah, at last the long awaited game finally gets its 
authoritative review. We could have tried to 
squeeze a mini one it into the last issue, but 
because it's such a large and involved game we 
decided to spend a whole month playing it! So if 
you haven't bought it already, find out exactly 
what if s like on... Page 54 




Body Blows 



Those of you who were disappointed with 
Streetiighter 2 on the Amiga, are in luck! We've

ages, so now it's actually arrived we've been 
beating each other up every day! Find out how 
well it plays on... Page 58

GAME REVIEW

v»M4/- 



Have you sussed 

your original 

Lemmings yet? 

Well, I hope you have 

because those lovable, 

but suicidal mammals are 

back. If you can save 

them, then 
"^fy boats will fly. 




Remember these guys? I've always been a big fan of the classics* So I was over the moon when Psygnosis included 10 levels 
with only the original eight attributes to play with in the sequel If you thought learning to use those mere eight lemming 
skills was tough, just wait and see what Lemmings 2 - The Tribes has in store for you. 





NO 



If ever there was an oul-of-lhe-blue suc- 
cess story, then ihc original Lemmings 
was it. Everyone ai Amiga Format 
treated its arrival in 1 990 as jusi another jiffy 
bag in the mail. Bui the envelope contained 
what was to become one of the classic Amiga 
games of all time. Some snubbed il al first. 
saying that they didn't like puzzlers, but in the 
end the sound of one "Oh no!" would turn 
even the most hardened cynic into an addict. 

Lemmings has spanned the age groups - 
no Amiga user has been safe. They even 
invaded Christmas by appearing on a special 



(Amiga Format 30) Coverdisk. dressed up in 

Santa costumes. But is there enough mileage 
left in the lovable creatures to carry the legend 
through to the next generation? Well, by Ihc 
look of Lemmings 2 - The Tribes this thing 
could last and last. 

Nothin' gets me down 

The objective is much the same as on the pre- 
decessor: you have to lead a tribe of lemmings 
through a landscape full of chasms and traps to 
an exit, then on to the next level. There arc 1 20 
levels in all (the same number as the first, tak- 




Contoct: Psygnosis

ing into account the difficulty levels) each pos- 
ing a problem to solve, but all leading to one 
goal. And what is that goal? Well, we'd better 
tell you a story... 

For starters there's a plot. The lemmings 
you saved in the first game have migrated to 
Lemming Island and they've split into 12 
'Tribes', all with separate lifestyles. However, 
all the tribes have kept their portion of the 
sacred Lemming Talisman to remind them of 
their ancestry, and protect them from evil. 

All is not rosy though, because Jimmy 
McLemming has taken it upon himself to

PAY ATTENTION 007, THIS IS WHAT YOUR NEW LEMMINGS DO... 





A lemming can now paddle across any 
expanse of water with a kayak - a useful 
Skill to have. 



An attractor will stop and play his 
favourite instrument. Lemmings like to 
dance, so they'll gather for a boogie. 




A fencer will cut away land, leaving a 
tunnel that slopes upwards. He'll stop 
though if he hits fresh air or metal . 




Rock (limbers can scale vertical surfaces, 
but they can also get around over hangs 
of less than 45 degrees. 



Make a lemming Into a roper and he'll 
fire a grappling hook which pulls a line 
after it strong enough to walk on. 



A Super lemming will fly like a bird to 
the cursor. Unless he hits any land, then 
he'll tum back into Clarke Lam.

impending doom. He's informed the elders of 
each tribe that the only way to save them from 
extinction is to collect the tribes* \2 different 
pieces of the talisman together in the centre of 
the island. Only then can the lemmings sum- 
mon the giant flying boat that can take them to 
a faraway safe haven.

The only problem is that although they've

tures and buildings which have been

Ihc lalisman. The nearer to the centre of the 
map the chunk of medallion is, the nearer thai 
tribe of lemmings is to the lake. 

Before you start playing the game, or if 
you come across a new skill that vou're not 
sure how to use. you can enter Practice mode. 
You're given the option to use any eight of the 
52 lemming attributes, in one of four locations. 

The control system in Lemmings 2 works 
much the same as it did in the first game. For 
those of you who don't already know, various 
attributes are laid out in a panel at the bottom 
of the screen. Selecting a skill and clicking on 
a lemming gives that chosen skill to that par- 
ticular lemming. You have lo use the right 
skills in the right place in order to gel as many 
lemmings as possible to the exit. 

The four elements 

Balloons, stick-on Icarus wings and hang glid- 
ers are 'Air' skills. Some lemmings utilise the 
superpower of unaided flight lo gel them 
across unbridgeable gaps. Most of the airborne 
skills lake advantage of another new feature of 
the game - ihe fan. Clicking on the fan icon 
and holding the mouse button down will pro- 
duce .t stream of air from the cursor to propel 
airborne lemmings through the skies. 

Among ihe water-loving lemmings are 
surfers, swimmers and divers. There arc even 
ice skaters to deal with ihe fro/en Stretches of 
water in the cinder lands. Club bashers and 
scoopcrs can be made to dig through the earth. 
burrowing out a sale passage. 

The gifi of fire has also been discovered 
on Ihe island. No rubbing slicks together

Twice the number of 
trap doors doesn't 
necessarily mean 
twice the number of 
lemmings. But it usu- 
ally means twice the 
amount of trouble. 
Skilful use of the 
pause button will 
help you here.

able time, but you

basics and gone straight to ihe flamethrowers. 
A lemming with this skill can blast through ihe 
landscape like a hoi knife through margarine. 

At first, having this number of skills avail- 
able to you is a daunting prospect. More 
often than not you'll use 
completely the wrong 
type of earth mover 
ai ihe beginning 
Then you'll gel 
stuck in a place 
where you need 
that particular 
attribute to escape. 

You'll need at least 
three goes before you work 
out exactly what's going on. If the iry. try. 
try again method doesn't work for you. then 
the option is always there to go and play 
around with anolher tribe. 

Clicking on the tribe's sector of the map 
screen will take yoil immediate Is (well almost) 
to that tribe's present position. 




Lemmings 2 has no level codes. Games are 

saved on to disk, so make sure there's a tor 

malted disk reads before you start. Otherwise 

vou're liable lo lose vour hard work. The lev- 

els are so diverse lhal you're likely lo forget 

how you completed a particular 

level if you have lo go 

back to ii again. 

By the end of 
vour first bash at

begin to feel for ihe

lemmings are making thai familiar dying noise 
off screen.

All the way through, the game slays true

WITH EACH NEW GAME, THE STANDARD GETS HIGHER 
NO WONDER THE COMPETITION'S FLAGGING. 



CD-ROM is destined to become the premier medium for on-screen entertainment in the early 90's. 
No question. So it's no coincidence that Psygnosis has been committed to developing CD-ROM 
products practically since its inception. Investment, research and a far-sighted dedication to this 
advanced medium has meant that we're far ahead of the competition and looking to expand 
even further as CD-ROM prepares to take the computer games market by storm. 



An integral part of this schedule of market domination is the attraction of talented people of 
graduate calibre to work in this fascinating and highly rewarding environment.

GAME REVIEW 







Team 1 7 have promised 
us that they've produced 

the best beat-em-up on 

Amiga! Is it streets ahead 

of its rival? Read on... 





A fight set in a Russian laboratory. Dan vs Nik is always a crowd-puller, because it's the really cool one against the. erm. other 
really cool one. In fact, they're so alike they could be brothers. What's that? They are? Oh. blimey... 




OK, Id's cut the crop. I know what 
most of you want from this review, 
and thai is whether or no! /Wv 
Blows is better than StrfCtfighter 2. Well, to 
quickly put you out of your misery, you can he 
assured that it's, erm, streets ahead of the 
Amiga version of thai game, so if you're a 
beai-cm-up fan it's money well spent. 

Unfortunately it still falls slightly short of 
the console version, but then SF2 is the best 
game by far on the SNES so you have in ask 
yourself. "Is it worth shelling out the money 
tor a console to play one beat-em-up. when I 
can buy Body Blows for my Amiga for under 
£.W and. of course, the answer to thai is .i 
resounding "No". 

It's worth pointing out that I'm not a big 
fan of the Amiga SF2 at all. and I considered 
the S7 per cent thai we awarded the game back 
in /»f*43 to be much ton high a score - 70 or 
75 per cent would be more like u so bear that 
in mind when you read on. 

What's Streetfighter 21 

If you've been sharing a bedsit with Salman 
Rushdie for the last year, you may not have 
heard about the console boom. The game 
Streetfighter 2 is probably responsible for 
more console sales than any other game, with 
multi-million pound advertising campaigns 
stuck firmly behind it. 

This hype carried over to the Amiga ver- 
sion of the game released just before 
Christmas, and reports m January suggested 
that vales of ihe Amiga game had reached 
120.(100 and shll rising. That's an enormous 
amount, considering it was only an average 

conversion of the game. 



Now. though. Amiga owners have got 
something to bark about, and it's all because of 
Team 17. the Yorkshire-based softies responsi- 
ble for such classics as Alien Breed and 
Project-X. Their game is similar in style to 
SF2. with the characteristic large sprites, ani- 
mated backgrounds and sampled effects. 

Maim that 'toon 

For those of you not familiar, the plot of the 
game goes something like this: man fights 




Contact: Team I 7 
0924 291867 



man. man wins. Man fights another man. man 
wins. Man lights woman, man wins - and con- 
tinues in this way until man loses. 

The details aren't important, excepl to say 
you can play one of four characters, and you 
musl fight another nine opponents in separate 
contests so that you may be crowned winner, 
liach ol the characters are completely different 
in terms of agility and abilities, so during the 
course of the tournament you face plenty of 
different challenges. 





Dug demonstrates his amazing 'flying blubber' technique, 
where he glues his belly to his opponent's head. 



Fortunately. Kossak's built of sterner stuff, and he's having 
none of it. The duck and the babe behind look impressed. 



GAME REVIEW 



//////({(iiiiin 




As the fight moves to the left and right the screen scrolls along accordingly. This Is a 
view of the Shaolin Temple level, made possible due to the wonders of technology. 



Junior hits Maria below the waist. Still, they don't seem to follow the Queensbury 
rules in Body Blows, so it's not as though he's going to be disqualified. 



The players* distinctive characteristics are 
accentuated bv their heavily caricatured lea- 
lUltS, such as Dug wilh his huge beer- gut and 
shovel hands, or Ninja wilh his huge sword 
and black balaclava helmet. It's very realistic 
in a cartoony sort of way. 

The sound is most)) good quality 100. 
wilh a tunc lo match each of the --even differ- 
ent fight sellings and lots of sampled speech, 
which give the game a good atmosphere. 

Control is via a normal one-builon joy- 
slick (which is one-up on the console 
counterparts), and different combinations of 
directions and the fire-button will enable you 
to perform different moves. 

As well as ihe normal punch/kick moves, 
each characler has between two and five spe- 
cial abilities, such as energy bolls and 
whirlwind kicks. To gel an idea of ihe differ- 
ent players' abilities, see below 



Fighting takes place in seven different 
areas, including ihe Shaolin Temple and Nmi.i 
Cavern, along wuh some additional scenes 
such as a Russian Laboratory and a building 

siie. As with St'2. there is no interaction 

between the scenery and ihe characters, but it's 
pretty and includes the odd hit of animation. 

Feel the power 

So. we've established lhat it looks good and ii 
sounds good, so where does ii lose out? 
Although it's extremely playable, and offers an 
excellent challenge, it does have its problems - 
however mt-picky the\ may be. 

For the mosi part, the collision detection 
between characters generally works well, but 
when Dan tries an upper cut. he can miss his 
opponent by half an inch or so and >et still 
magicalK make contact (like I said, nil-picks 
but noticeable i. All the characters have sonic - 




Ninj.V* got his tool 
out but little docs he 
know Maria's about 
to get him in the 
Busters. 



SOME OF THE BODIES YOU COME TO BLOWS WITH... 




NIK 

This character is not as 
wimpy as his phenome- 
nal. Eighties pop star 
namesake Mr Kershaw. 
This Nik Is instead 
pretty hip, sporting 
trainers and baseball 
cap. Oh d and he's a bit 
hard as well, especially 
when he uses his Inner 
Energy to produce a 
bolt of sheer power. 




YIT-U 

This guy only has two 
special moves, but one 
of them is probably the 
most effective. Speed 
of Light causes him to 
advance on his oppo- 
nent speedily, leaving a 
blur behind him. Once 
he's started It's diffi- 
cult to stop him - even 
jumping out of the way 
is nigh on impossible. 




Although he 
Is slow-mov- 
ing, he is 
Incredibly 
strong and 
has three 
special abili- 
ties* 

Earthcharge t* handy, because it electrifies the 
floor around Kossak and kills anyone nearby. The 
most bizarre special Is Driller Killer, where he twirls 
his way Into the floor, only to later reappear in a 
nearby spot. 



DUG 

Well, this bloke's fust 
obese, really. He seems 
to use his vastly over* 
weight body to his 
^k. -*r \ J 1 advantage, by jumping 

^ up and down on the 

^k spot and causing major 

^^ ^J^J earthquakes, thereby 
defeating his opponent through mere vibration. Also, 
he has a neat (and gravity -defying) way of leaping and 
dive-bombing his enemies, and squashing them under 
his mounds of flab* Urgh. 




thine gotxl going for them apart from Maria, 
who is stupidly thin, and doesn't so much yell 
,is squawk as she kicks you in the face. 

Finally, there isn't as much feel* as we 
expected from the came. The leel* factor of a 
game isn't easily defined, but there is some- 
thing lacking - it just seems a little bit loo 
clinical and robotic. 

Still, this is far and away the best Amiga 
bcat-envup ever. It's technically excellent. 
polished, and it brings up-to-date an area ol 
the Amiga which has been sadly lacking 
recently. If you already have Streetfightei 2, 
sell it and buy Body Blows,

GAME REVIEW 



Not all games about the 
Middle East have to be 
based on military hard- 
ware, as Krisalis prove

•o 



By day. Sinbad Jnr is a humble appren- 
tice gardener, whose only royal 
connection is the plants he lends in the 

palaee garden. H\ night, he's the secret love of 
the beautiful princess Laila. 

But alas, Laila's father (the Caliph) 
requires a large quantity of green stufl (and I 
don't mean leaves) to convince him that Junior 
is the right man to marry his precious daugh- 
ter. Apprentice gardeners do not earn much. 
even those who tend the palace greener. 

Meanwhile, in a castle far away, the evil 
Vizier is plotting his evil plans. One day he 
intends to rule the kingdom, but first, he want* 
to marry the princess, and secondly, push the 
king off some tower in a few years lime. 

The Vizier has never attended any charm 
school, so in place of the usual romantic pro- 
posal he arranges for a demon to sweep the 
princess off her feet, and cast a spell over the 
kingdom so that no-one notices. Cunning eh? 

Don't desert me 

The demon is caught in the act. though, by the 
ever vigilant Junior who climbs the walls in 
search of his lost love. But as he L'ets there, the 
demon lifts oft with the bride-to-be and leaves 
Sinbad to face the music with the palace guard 
who. in a fit of understanding unique to his 
prolession. throw him into the dungeons and 
lease him to ml. 

Here's where you come in. All you've got 
to do is get out o\ the dungeon, fight any crea- 
ture that crosses your path, destroy the evil 
Vizier and rescue your true love. Simple, non? 
So strike a heroic pose, let the light glint off 
your teeth, brandish your sword as though you 
know what you're doing and gel on with it. 

Getting out ol the dungeon is not as sim- 
ple as it may seem. There are puzzles to solve, 
treasure diesis to open, currenc) to collect and 




Here, as you've completed a level successfully, it's time for the obligatory strip search by the nice customs officer. If you've 
been good, all he'll do is take all your money and keep it safe for you. If you've been bad he'll set Biffa the dog on you. 




nasi) enemies to destroy with your mighty 
sword. Just because you're called Junior 
doesn't mean you can't hack-and-slash along 
with the best of them. There is also help at 
hand m the form of flashing light bulbs and 
friendly citizens who haven't fallen under the 
spell of the evil Vizier. 

The gameplay is an easy mix of platform 
and puzzle and like most games of this genre, 
try and pick up anything that isn't nailed 
down. The puzzles are straightforward if you 
employ a little lateral thinking, but to progress 
through the game you'll have to solve them all. 

When one needs to be solved, a flashing 
light bulb appears above your head 10 offer 
you a clue. Some of the clues arc obvious, but 
.»s you ean'l gel killed while VOU read them, 
w .iste a little time in the pursuit of knowledge.

rency. In the dungeon ihcsc aie jjems. on other 
levels lhe> are skulls, fish skeletons and other 
weird things. Collect as much currency as you 
>:,in. it may be required for some puzzles

Strange customs 

There are nine levels to complete, but only 
tour ol them have end-ol-lcvel guardians to 
kill bet ore you can progress. When sou com- 
plete a level, because you are hopping over 10 
another country, you will have to lace the 
dreaded customs officer. Don't worry though. 




Definition of frustration - falling off a blue block for the umpteenth time while being chased by 
blue firey windmills. It's funny but these bits always get to you. Aarrggghhhhhh... 




I love it when it snows. But I didn't think they had snow in Arabia. Can I play with my sledge after 
I've finished rescuing the beautiful princess? No? Well can I play with the nice snowmen instead? 



because there's no risk of a quick strip search. 
His job is simply lo convert your currency into 
points, and lo lighten your load and take any- 
thing oil" you that you don't need any more. 

Sheep might fly... 

The music and sound effects .ire very catchy. 
When you hack bits off the scenery, the action 
is accompanied by a realistic sound effect. The 
best is on the flying carpet levels, where sheep 
are either being fired al you or they're entered 
for the high jump in the next Olympics. The 
'startled sheep' bleat should be patented. 




Much of the gameplay seems familiar, but 
as a mixture of different ideas and style this 
works really well. There is plenty of atmo- 
sphere, built up by the music and effects, which 
make the game pretty addictive. 

But at the end of the day. it's a pretty futile 
quest. I mean, will the beautiful princess really 
want to marry an ex-prisoner, even if he did 
s.tvc her life '

GAME REVIEW 





Ready for your first million, adrenaline pumping, you dash to the chopper in this excellent animated intro sequence. Before 
you know it you'll be in the thick of the action, being shot at from all angles. Only the best pilots survive all the missions. 



Seeing as I'm such a nice chap, I stopped along 
the way to pick up some stranded soldiers. 






-< 



You've ail seen the war on TV, and now it's your chance to Return 
to the Gulf. But be careful not to get sand kicked in your face. 



Somewhere in ihe depths of the Middle 
Bast, ;t madman by the name of General 
Kilhaha has taken over a rich Arab 
Emirate and is planning to end the world by 
killing us all with a iuist\ cocktail of nuclcai 
and chemical weapons. In true John Wayne 
fashion, Mr President (of the good ole USA - 
where else?) has decided to send in you ami 
your trusty Apache helicopter to sort out the 
situation and hopefully avert Armageddon. 

Sounds familiar? You'd not be wrong to 
My that this game has been influenced by a 
certain military operation that happened i cou- 
ple of \cars ago in a country not a million 
miles awa\ from Saudi Arabia. 

This umc it's just you against the might of 
the Iraqi - sorry, not Iraqi. - I mean General 
Kilbabt*! terrorist army. You're in an Apache 
Miack helicopter, while the enemy has soldiers 
armed with AK47s. anti-aircraft missiles, gun- 
boats, helicopters and tanks 

Arabs with attitude 

An excellent intro sequence lakes you into the 

game, with some nicely drawn animations, and 

a good rave-type soundtrack. Quite what this 

has got to do with battles in the desert I don't 

know, hut n \ rather good anyway. 

The game is broken up into sc\cral mis 

sions. which are then split into several tasks. 
such as destroying a radar installation, and 
destroying an airfield. Completing one mission 
gives you the password to start the next one. 
There's no way that you'll be able to complete 
the missions on the stocks of fuel and weapons 



that you start out with, but fortunately, the 
cncim have been considerate enough to leave 
some lying around. A number of your soldiers 
are wandering around in enemy territory. They 
shout 'Over here!* very loudly when you spot 
them. Picking them up and dropping them 
back at the coastal landing site helps to replace 
the armour chipped away by enemy fire. 




Contoct: 
Electronic Arts 
0753 549442 



You control your helicopter with the joy- 
stick and keyboard. As you'd expect, the 
joystick tilts the helicopter, moving you for- 
wards or backwards, which lakes a bit of time 
to get used to. The Tire-button fires your cho- 
sen weapon, and the space-bar switches 
between the three available. 

You spin me round 

It's also possible to control the helicopter by 
using the keyboard or the mouse, but using this 
is nigh on impossible, because you inevitably 
end up spinning all over the place. Pressing 




"There's a great kebab shop at the corner of Saddam Avenue and Khomeini Street. Your mission is to get on* large doner, 
with extra chilli sauce." Stormin' Norman places his order tor the next instalment in the Gutf. 



GAME REVIEW 




The control panel of your multi-million dollar helicopter is your window 
on the world. Well, desert. Without this. If* Mission Extremely Difficult. 



THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO BOOM! 






Enemy anti-aircraft 
guns can be a pain In 
the fuselage. 



Picking up your 
Ml As is a very kind 
thing to do, right. 



No. not a barrel of 
laughs but gallons of 
extra fuel* 






Jeeps can't hit you, 
but you can blast the 
hell out of them. 



Enemy soldier. Pick 
them off because 
they kill your MlAv 





This Rapier can do a 
lot more damage 
than 'Metal Mickey*. 






Tanks sort of move 
around a bit and 
they shoot you. 



Armoured cars are 
slow, but extremely 

obstinate enemies. 




Your enemy leaves 
boxes of weapons 
lying around. Great! 




Death, is. they say. merely another point on the karmic wheel of birth and rebirth. So I'm going to 
be reborn as a helicopter pilot a few seconds later. Bad Karma! 



FIO puis you into the map screen, which shows 
>uur location, and the various other targeis 
aw-aiting vour pleasure. 

The map also contains details of where you 
can find fuel and armaments, and where the 
Missing In Action (MIA) soldiers are located. 
You're supplied with information on each mis 
sum, and are given new- objectives as you work 
through the missions. 

Desert Strike runs in a 3D. isometric sort 
<>l viewpoint, which takes a bit of getting used 
10 Unfortunately, this means that objects some- 
times disappear behind others, but this is only a 
small inconvenience. Steering the helicopter is 
something of an acquired habit, because H lakes 
a bit of lime to get used to the angle of view. 

How sandy is my desert 

I here are plcnt) <»! sound effects, ranging from 
whirring rotor noises, loud explosions and your 
soldiers shouting "Over here!". These all add to 
the atmosphere, and there's always plenty 
going on. Unfortunately, it's too much at times. 
and occasionally one of the sounds doesn't 
work, or one is cut off in the middle. However, 
it's more of an irritation than a problem, espe- 
cially if you're a fussy so and so like mc. 




***** 




Guilty of wearing a beret dark glasses and a 
beard. He probably smokes as well. 

The graphics are well drawn and smooth, 
although the background is a bit jittery, but 
because the helicopter is smoothly drawn, 
you're not likely to notice. The game runs in 
extra half-bright mode, which means that you 
can get realistic shadows, and extremely effec- 
tive-looking explosions, although these 
sometimes seem to be in the wrong place. 

Previous efforts at combining flight sims 
and shoot-cm-ups have been less than success- 
ful, so it's great to see Electronic Arts pull off 
this tricky combination. Desert Strike has got 
more going for it than the average shoot -cm- 
up and should appeal to those interested in 
strategy games. It also retains the excitement 
of blasting the enemy to dust. 

Strike while the desert is hot! 

Richard Baguley O 




Successful crovs between a shoot -em-up and 
a flight simulator. 

Great graphics, good sounds. 

Missions are interesting and varied. 



Occasional glitches in sound and *Won. hut 
these don't deter from the gamepUy. 

Tremendous fun lu play. 

Uakka dakka riakka! kabuom! 



Oh, no! There you Mr; you've done the business, you're ready lo rescue the UN inspectors, and some budding Kate Adie goes 
and parks her v*n directly in front of you. So If you've got a spare Hellfire missile, you might just... no don't I was joking.

GAME REVIEW 





=< 



It's a vicious battle 
to rule the seven 
seas, in what is 
one of the best 
multiplayer games yet 
seen on the Amiga! 



This game lakes its title from the year 
thai the Sue/, canal was opened. The 
authors decided that this year, more 
thun any other, marked a decline from the old 
age of sailing ships, to the succeeding steam- 
powered ships. And people say propellor 
heads are dull... 

You. and up to three other players are 
traders- starting oft" in the year 1X54. The idea 
is to build up a successful tleet of ships, open 
warehouses round the globe, and prey off both 
the new empire*, of the developing world and 
the raw material providers of the third. Guess 
who gets the rawer deals. Hmm. it's not as it 
they could've set the game in this century now 
is it? {Little hit of politics - Ed, ) 

In single-player mode, after setting how 
long you play for (from five 10 26 years) you 
choose your headquarters location and are 
plunged straight into the game. Your base of 
operations can be in London. Liverpool. I.c 
Harvre, New York or Savannah. Each plan- 
has its own advantages and disadx antages. 

In multiplayer mode, you get an extra 
treat - the ship auctions. All players go along 
and bid against each other for a Starling ship. 
A certain amount of physical prowess is useful 
to beat the others to the mouse, but of course 
this is optional. 

Infamy! Infamy! 

1869 is a graphical poini-und-click manage- 
ment simulation. You don't have 10 play via a 
mouse - keyboard control is much faster, and 
less dependent on the dubious quality of 
Commodore mouse buttons. Bui it does lake 
more practice to master this control method. 

Buying and selling ships is a skill in it^ 
own right. Most new players opt lor 




This is very much the bottom end of the labour market, but with a decent ship you don't need an America's Cup-quality crew. 
Given a bit of on-the-job training they'll soon shape up - and they won't cost much either! 




steamships straightaway, bin this is a very 

dumb move, because in 1854 coal was expen- 
sive, so sailboats are a much better option. 
Used ships are preferable to brand new ones. 
since ihes can be commissioned straight from 
a shipyard, if the port you are in has one. 

Buying cargo is much more straightfor- 
ward. Point and click at the port you are in. 
.imi the merchant's screen comes up. A mcr-

chant may have nothing to sell, because some 
products arc seasonal. In a well-developed 
area, up to two commodities may be up for 
gnfafi. If your HQ is in the port, you can store 
excess quantities. You can also open ware- 
houses wherever you go. if you have the cash. 
Cash is the big problem. Most places sell 
things, but merchants are choosy about what 
the) bu\. They will alwaw otter \ou a price 





Hmm, the crew are getting close to mutiny. Then again, they have been working without a break 
for six whole months - better give them a day off or they'll do a runner. 



Oops, went a bit too far. Overstretching your crew means that new crews 
are more wary of sailing with you. and so are more expensive. 



GAME REVIEW 




This Is the main playing screen. Click on the world map to scroll around the Earth - click with the right button to; get informa- 
tion; go to the pub; buy. sell and repair ships; and visit your warehouse. Simple and fast - just how I like itl 



on merchandise, but il lhe> don'! want it then 
you'll make a loss. Small quantities fetch bel- 
ter pnecs than huge shipment"., but getting 
small quantities of anything is not eas) 

At the top nghl ot the screen is the date. 
You click on this lor time to move on. anil 
lime can literally change the whole game. 
There's little point trying to sneak into 
Savannah lor eolton during the American Civil 
War < 1 86:- 1 865 > because you'll get caughi by 
blockadcrs most of the lime. Running amis to 
Odessa during the Crimean War is similarlx 
fraught with peril. Sure, if you make it then the 
payoff is huge - but you don't make it oiten 
enough to make il a good business exercise. 

Ich bin ein manual 

Most of the noteworthy events in the limeline 
arc mentioned in the manual. This quiu- 
length) tome is unlike am other I've seen. It s 
got the historical detail of ihe Wings <.1/ V I6- 
79 per cent) manual, the gel-started quick sec- 
tion of a MicroPros^ manual, and quile a few 




NEEDS 1 MEC 




Germglish howlers that have had me in 
stitches. It makes damned-good reading, 
though the translators' English is a lot belter 
than my Deutsch. 

It's iruly unique, a bil over the top in 
places and lotally sanitised in others. The 
lengthy description of New World passenger 
conditions is quite stomach lurning. bul there's 
no mention of flogging - a common form of 
punishment for the era 

Is il any fun? Well, in solo-player mode, il 
lacks depth. It has some humorous animations. 
but you don'i get enough in ihe way of diffi- 
culty levels or different scenarios. Initially it 
di»es seem like a one-track game - well that's 
how I felt after 10 hours of play. 

After those 10 hours, ihough. I iried play- 
ing against some friends. Then the game 
changed. You see. if you buy up ihe goods 
from a port, or hea\ il\ suppl\ goods to a port, 
then the other pla\ers suffer if they iry the 
same run but come second. You have cornered 
the market and there's noi a lot they can do. 





This is the bottom line - more expensive ships are much prettier and can carry more cargo. Later on. steamships can be better 
buys, because they don't get stuck in the doldrums. Earlier on. they are expensive to power - coal costs money. 



>m 



Different shipwrights build different vessels. 
The British use iron, Americans go for wood. 

OK. lo be honest after a couple of hours 
they sussed me oui. and ISW became a mother 
of all battles. We staged 'real' tea races lo see 
who could run the fastest shipments of illegals. 
who could grab ihe richest markets nghl from 
under your nose. This naturally led to 
alliances, power groups, treaties and all sorts 
of other mayhem. The limeline may stay the 
same, bul the way you play alters the game 
every lime. A bit like chess, bul much more 
subtle and less headache inducing. 

Social animal 

If you never play computer games socially. 
thai is wiih other people, then you probably 
won't like 1S69. Well, unless you're heavily 
inio management simulations and like making 
naval logs lo map out the world markets. 

I found il just too pointless in solo-player 
mode, it's also very, very difficult. The straw 
that breaks your bank is ihe taxman. who calls 
ai ihe end of every year. How true to life. 

Usually. I prefer lo play games that arc 
more escapist than this. But I did get this one 
insight from il - merchant navy captains of the 
lasi century were often inhumane. The reason 
wh> is quile simply that the job demanded it - 
you had to be in order to slay in business, lei 
alone make a profit. If s naive to judge people 
from yesterday by today's standards. 

If you're heavily into 1 9th century 
nautical history, or you play on an Amiga 
with other enlightened beings, and the idea of 
pretending to he .i hard-nosed, back-slabbing, 
scrupulous capitalist appeals to you. then go 
buy this game. Just be prepared to play like a 
real Thalchcriie.

GAME REVIEW 





UJ 






Do you want a 

flight sim that 

takes more than 

joystick-waggling 

to master? Well then, 

do MicroProse have a 

simulation for you! 

Lei's gel one thing straight. This isn't 
your normal Might simulator, where 
you leap into the COCkpfl and destroy 
the entire Gcrman/Russian/Iraqi .nrforcc 
within the first five minutes, using your super 
hi-tcc megadeath missiles. Phis one is going to 
lake you a long lime to leam about, and a long 
lime to really get to grips with. 

As you may have guessed, this game is 
based on the HP I lying hmress. which was 
first unveiled on 16 July 1935. After the US 
declared war on Germany in 1941. the Kth Air 
Force was sent to England to join the British in 
the high-altitude precision bombing of occu- 
pied Europe. Which is where you come in.... 

Overpaid and over there 

The manual contains a wealth of information 
on the history and tactics of bombing and 
bombers, but it's a little sparse on Hying ihe 
plane. I would have preferred a bit more on ihe 
mechanics of using Ihe bombsight and a bit 
less on the history of the British bombing cam- 
paign 1940-41. There's a good run-lhrough ol 
fl typical combat mission, but it would have 
been heller if it had been related to the game 
itself, with screenshois showing ihe sort of 
thing you're likely to come across. I'd recom- 
mend you give Ihe manual a thorough read 
through before starting the game. 

["here are some nice intro screens, but the 
music is abysmal. Il tries to give a Forties feel 
to the game, but jusl ends up making you want 
to rip out your sound lead. Fortunately, once 
you get into the game, this music is consigned 
to the great bomb crater in ihe sky. and is 
replaced by a variet) of well sampled sounds. 

The BI7 had a crew of 10: pilot, co-piloi. 
navigator, bombardier, radio operator, engi- 
neer and four gunners. You lake the position

You can select your own nose art for your plane, in true World War II fashion. Various buxom wimmin are available. I how- 
ewer decided to go for the less traditional, and altogether less saucy picture. 




ol airplane commander, which means thai you 
can step in and lake over any of the positions. 
All of them can be computer-controlled, so 
you can just sit and watch if you want. 
However, your crew are not too experienced to 
begin with, so you'll need to keep an eye on 
them - a helping hand improves their skills. 
For instance, ihe navigator has the annoying 
habit of gelling lost on ihe way home, but if 
you put him right, he learns from his mistakes. 
You begin by choosing your bomber, its 
nose art and name. Then vou can choose either 




a training (light thumb Ihe Isle of Sheppcy ) or 
a proper mission over occupied territory. 
Whichever you choose. >ou gel the option of 
Viewing B short film of a reconnaissance flight 
OVei both the primary and secondary targets. 
You've goi I" tmd the target yourself (none of 
this laser-guided nonsense i, so n makes sense 
to pay attention to this and not attack ihe local 

nursen school b\ mistake 

Once you're happ> with it. you accept the 

mission, and you're deposited on ihe airfield.

GAME REVIEW 



E^tarnal View 



Pilot External View 




I do behrve that this plane may have a problem flymg, and he seems to 
have lost a wing somewhere. How careless. 



If you wish, you can choose the Pilot External View * roughly speaking, what you'd be seeing if you 
were the pilot and had bailed out but wanted to watch your plane scream past into the sunset...

hers of the squadron, and take off in order. 
You're m the pilots seat to begin with, hut if 
you're not sure about this, you can switeh over 
in computer control by pressing 'M'. For the 
first couple of missions, it may he an idea to 
lei the computer take control while you l<»ok 
around and familiarise yourself with the plane. 
As you'd expect, there's a lot of waiting 
around while you're flying to your destination 
You can jump through to the next point when 
something's happening by pressing Alt T. or

several hundred miles off target. If you do get 
lost, you'll need to have a look around and see 
what local sights you can spot. The tactical 
view is also useful, because it tells you what 
the nearest significant town or airfield is. 

Ol course, there are many people who 
aren't too happy about you trying to bomb 
them. German fighters and flak pop up regu- 
larly, and you can either let the computer deal 
with the business of blasting them or step in 
and deal out the hot lead yourself. You can 
steer the gun or turret \% ith either the joystick or 
keys, and analog joysticks Bit not supported. 

Freeze, sucker 

It's well put together, with one or two excep- 
tions. The samples used for the sound are OK. 
but there's little variation. The engine noise is 
the same whatever the revs, and n gets on the 
ner\es after a bit. On an A5(K) with only 1Mb 
of memory it's pretty jerky, and (here's rather 
a lot of disk accessing. For some reason, the 
machine freezes while this is happening, which 
interrupts the flow of the gumepla). For 
instance, when you first encounter a German 
plane and start blasting, the screen freezes 
while the graphics for the bullet-bursts arc 
loaded. However, on an A 1 200 with a hard disk 
it all runs smoothly. The plane's graphics are 
fairlv simple, but what there is. is well 
designed, and it all moves very- convincingly . 



f-'/vwy Fortress is a game that will last 
and last, which is why it earns itself a coveted 
Amiga Format Gold award. Once you get into 
it, the challenge of getting your crew more 
experienced, without getting them killed will 
keep you coming back for more, time after 
time. Your crew can retire after 25 missions. 
but you'll probably want to start off a new 
one. If you're after a quick thrill, you won't 
find it here. But if you're looking for some- 
thing that's accurate and atmospheric, this is 
the one lo get.

GAME REVIEW 







Core Design's sequel to 

their dinosaur-ridden 

platformer is here. 

Sequel or mammoth 

rehash? Well if you can 

bear the puns, read on... 

It's been a while since Chuck Rocks orig- 
inal prehistoric frolic, when he rescued 
his gorgeous wife Ophelia Rock (snigger, 
tharr) from the clutches of the evil. Nean- 
derthal, glam pop star Gar)' Gritter. Chuck's 
obviously found better ways to spend his time 
than coming up with appalling stone-related 
puns, (hough, because Chuck and Ophelia now 
have an heir to the family fortune. 

'Hang on a minute', you cry in a Lcs 
Dennis-y sort of way. 'What family fortune?' 
Oh yeah. Well, dubious though it may seem. 
(he brick-brained hero of Chuck Rock is now a 
respectable and comfortably well-off business- 
man, in charge of the Fjord (Fjord? That's not 
a kind of rock) motor company. 

Life would be all wine and stone roses if it 
wasn't for (he one bloi on Chuck. Ophelia and 
Chuck Jnr's horizon, in the rotund and flabby 
shape of the aforementioned Gary Gritter. 
Gary is the head honcho of the Datsione 
(that's belter) motor company. Fjord's major 
rivals, and he's deeply jealous of Chuck's 
soarawav success. 

Chuck him 

Now you might think that the best way to 
combat such a situation would be to work 
harder, design better and more innovative cars, 
capture a larger market share, mount a hostile 
takeover and give Chuck (he sack (like any 
businessman worth his salt'd do). 

But Gary hasn't got the patience for that, 
so he kidnaps his adversary instead and 
demands that Ophelia signs over the deeds of 
the company. Ophelia, being a woman, col- 
lapses in a fit of tears (of course), but Junior 
isn't about to sit idly by while his inheritance 
is stolen away, so he smashes out of his 
playpen and sets off to mount a rescue. 

Chuck 2 follows what it must be said is an 
extremely similar path to the original - lots of 
levels of mosth riari/ontall) scrolling, plat- 
form) action with lots of cartoon -type baddies 
to clobber and some enormous, cnd-of-lcvcl. 
dinosaur-related bosses. 




•s* << 

Erm. I'm not sure how to put this to you. Junior, but I reckon you should look behind, you. This is a prime example of the type 
of monsters you can expect in Son of Chuck - Core proclaim them to be the biggest ever in a computer game! 

Actually. I'd like to pause here and talk 
more about the bosses, because they're the 
most impressive the Amiga's ever seen. The 
bosses in Chuck I were very big and pretty 
(well, as pretty as prehistoric monsters get), 
but they were basically just large sprites with 
minimal animation which glided and (witched 
about in a noi-particularly-special manner. 

In Chuck 2 (hey really seem alive - dif- 
ferent bits of their bodies move at different 
limes, and more or less the entire bodies are 
animated in some way. with particular atten- 
tion paid to facial expressions. This facet of 
the baddies' personalities is put to 
good use in level three, which 
takes place entirely on the 
body of a giant dino ensconced 
in a lake. The 'boss' is in fact 
his head, and the mournful 
expression he wears as you 
attack makes you feel such a 
heel for clubbing him to death with 
your (er...) club that it's a real struggle with 
your conscience to continue. 

Heart of stone 

Still, continue you must ("The family's 
depending on you. young 'un!'>. and you'll 
have to harden your heart, because things don't 
get any less cute as you go along. 

As wilh Chuck I. there's laughs aplenty - 
my faves are the evil dinosaur which, after

caveman in a dinosaur suit, and the William 
Shatner si\ic wig-wearing thug whose rug 
takes on a lite of its own and attacks you inde- 
pendently when a hearty thwack separates it 
from its owner 

Bui, for all the impressive giant sprites 
and funny enemies, it's not all sweetness and 
light lor Chink 2. While there have been a few

refinements and enhancements made to the 
original gameplay. (his is slill just an update 
rather than a real sequel (taking 'real sequel' 
lo mean something which expands and builds 
on its predecessor, rather than rehashing it). 

Players of the first game might well feel 
they'll he nist a*, well gelling mil the original 
and playing it with a sheet of psychedelic - 
coloured cellophane over the screen to give the 
graphics a new look. 

And while gameplay-wise the game is 
practically identical, and a bit faster to boot, 
it's also a deal more frustrating - there are 
some annoyingly tricky jumps, made tricks 
mostly by the imprecise collision detection as 
regards whether Junior is actually standing on 
a platform or not. 

Lumbering dinos 

The baddies, apart from the aforementioned 
bosses, arc lacking in movement. They look 
groovy, but when it comes to attacking you. 
it's nearly always a straight walking-baek- 
wards-and-forwards-and-only-hitting-you-if- 
you-happen-to-get-tn-t heir- way affair 

This makes much of the game a dull U - 
sion of platform-climbing and relenttettl) 
battering the fire-button to take care of am - 
thing which might cross your path. 

There arc other hazards to contend with, 
(falling rocks, giant snowballs), but since they 
mostly move too fast for Chuck Jnr's reactions 



Junior summons all his might and power to bop 
the slimy octopus on the head with the club. 

to cope with, it's a case of learning when they 
come and keeping out of their way. rather than 
any kind ol battle of wits. 

Most of this is criticism that could be lev- 
elled at about 85 per cent of games, so let's not 
be too hard on Chuck 2. The main market for 
this game is going to be those who bought the 
first one. And if you liked that, this is. in 
almost every way. a tangible improvement. 

Chuck 2 is simple, undemanding fun that 
brings a smile to your face a sight more often 
than the average game, and any game that 
makes you happy is l game worth having a 
look at. at least. 

Game-wise Chuck Rock 2 is almost 
entirely unremarkable, hut as an entertainment 
experience it's not 100 bad at all.

smackin' game on the planet? Walker in all his 
three-dimensional glory. 




"Die. scumbags!" The wastelands of Los 
Angeles in 2019, where mutoid beings wander 
about waiting to be pumped full of lead... 



"Walker Control, this is Unit One." 

"Unit One. Proceed to the mission start- 
point. Once there you must destroy all UWgttS. 
Is that clear?" 

"Read affirmative, sir. They're history." 
Famous last words... 
Walker has no power-ups, no bonus levels, no 
coins to collect, and there's a distinctly un- 
cute main character (unless you happen to be 
into large, shiny, mechanical chickens). Also. 
because there arc no power-ups, you have to 
stick with the same weapons throughout the 
game: and to cap it all. the Walker walks from 
right-to-left, and the screen scrolls with it. 




On Difficult level, the end-of-level guardians get much tougher. At the end of level one, above, two rockets must be 
destroyed, while on Easy there's only one. Trouble is. you can only complete the game when running on Difficult.... 




After Lemmings 2 comes Walker, the second game by DMA 
Design/Psygnosis to be featured in this issue. This is becoming a 
bit of a monopoly! Can they score two hits in a row? 




So. what has it got going for it? Well, 
remember Zzoom by Imagine for Ihc Sinclair 
Spectrum? No? Well, in that game you had to 
control a gun by moving the sight around the 
screen searching for enemy soldiers. When 
you found one. you let loose sonic ammo, and 
the geezer died with a splash of BLOOD. Yes. 
Walker is similar in style to Zzoom, mainly 
because you use a big gun to shoot tiny men. 
and they disappear leaving behind a pool of 
that red stuff. 

Violence is golden 

If you don't like the sight of blood, or if you 
feel that violence in games will disturb you or 
your children, then you are not likely to find 
much to appreciate in Walker. On the other 



hand, if you like a good shoot-em-up. that will 
improve your hand-eye co-ordination and 
serve as a release for any built-up tension, then 
look no further. 

Bight levels with four different graphic 
Styles await you and your Walker, each is 
set in a different lime zone. These range 
from prc-World War II to way into the 
future, so the game throws a variety of 
enemies in your direction. In level one 
(WWII), expect everything from hang- 
gliders to tanks; while in level two 
(2 1st century LA) you will find heli- 
copters, laser-firing tanks, and battered 
dune buggies that fire heat-seeking missiles. 

Most of them can be finished off with one 
or two rounds of fire, but some (such as the 



Contact: Psygnosis 
051-709 5755 




heavily armoured tanks which make up the 
equivalent of the end-of-level guardian) take a 
lot more shots which must be strategically 
aimed. You have as many rounds to spare as 
you want, but your fire is limited by a tempcr- 
ilure bar which regulates the heat of your 
gun. If it overheats, your gun stops firing. 
I here are two skill levels, eas> and arcade. 
(iasy mode not only throws less enemies 
at you. but it also won't allow you to 
progress beyond level four - so you can't 
reach the end of the game without playing 
it on difficult mode. Excellent! 
Now we come to the only slight problem. 
Solid gameplay and technical brilliance are not 
all. we need some variety as well - and there 
lust isn't enough variety to keep you hooked 



FOOTBALL 





Level three. The Middle East. Lots of m*n run- 
ning about In desert uniforms. Fortunately, 
they can still be seen off with a single round... 



.and yes, here we have one we prepared ear- 
lier Notice the contrast between yellow and 
red as the massacre takes place. Pretty, huh? 





"There's too many of them." The soldier Inside 
the Walker reports back to base with a message 
containing more than a little distress*.. 

for more than a couple of hours al a lime. 
Having said that, ihis is definitely a game 
which you will want to load up again from 
lime lo lime, jusi to sec if you can get a little 
bit further - but for 30 quid that's not much of 
a consolation. 

Walks tall 

Anyway, on the cosmetic side. Walker is 
superb. The fluid animation of the main 
Walker character is matched by the six or 
seven-level parallax scrolling backgrounds, 
which arc done with such subtlety that it takes 
a while before you even notice them! 



This is a very strange end-of-level baddie. After 
you scrap one of these tanks, the crane comes 
down, picks it up. and drops it on your head! 



The sound effects are even better, with a 
lot of attention (and memory) given to getting 
the sounds right. For example, if you shool a 
tank, then it explodes with a sub-sonic boom- 
ing sample, and then if you keep shooting the 
wreckage, bits of shrapnel fall to the ground 
with a satisfying 'clank*. There are more to 
describe, if only we had the space. 

OK. to keep it short. Walker is the most 
adrenaline-pumping, hype-inducing, testos- 
terone-filled blast you're likely to see on the 
Amiga. Check that, on anything. Take a look, 
or forever hold your peace...

If you're one of the growing band of 
Amiga 1200 owners, you will be pleased 
to know that Walker will actually detect 
that you have such a machine, and 
enhance itself accordingly. 

Admittedly, this only means the 
addition of lots of sampled speech, but 
we reckon it's the first game to actually 
include enhancements as standard - and 
the speech does make one hell of a dif- 
ference. Well done DMA Design, we 
hope that others follow this lead.

HO TILES LEFT in BAG 



The main Scrabble game screen, with the computer player (TSP) at the top of the screen, and little me at the bottom. Actually, 
talking of bottoms, did the computer really put BUM for 13 points? It's downright disgusting If you ask me. 




Many moons ago. on ihc 8-bii micros 
such as ihe C64 and Spectrum, a 
company called Leisure Genius 
brought out a computerised version of that old 
board-game classic. Scrabble. At the time it 
was considered to be brilliant, with a reason- 
ably intelligent computer opponent and great 
presentation, including a feature known as 
dancing letters' - remember them? (it was a 
fancy way of jumbling up the tiles in your rack 
if you don't). 

One massive problem with the game, 
though, was that the memory of the early 8-bit 
computers was very limited, and so only a 
small dictionary was possible. To get around 
this, when the program was confronted with a 
word which it didn't recognise, it asked you if 
it was a word or not. Easy, eh? Not really. 
because you could always enter something like 
'HGQIKAJI.' on two triple-word squares, and 
score something like 2.000 points. When 
Scrabble then queried the word, you simply 
pressed Y and the poor computer was power- 
less to resist. 

Power player 

Now. though, the big guns of the Amiga are 
blazing, and US Gold have considered thai it's 
about time computer Scrabble was resurrected 
and brought up-to-date. The game is very sim- 
ilar in style to its 8-bit ancestors, but it has one- 
major thing that makes it stand head-and- 
shoulders above them: a full OSW dictionary. 

For those of you who don't play Scrabble. 
OSW is an acronym for Official Scrabble 
Wonts, which is .i special bonk mni.umn^ 
every word containing less than 10 letters that 



may be used in the game. This means that 
stored somewhere on the single Scrabble disk 
(yep. one disk) is a mammoth 1 34.000 word 
dictionary - certainly no mean feat. 

So. you may be thinking, the Amiga must 
take ages to search through that dictionary for 
words, yes? Well. no. it doesn't - it's blind- 
ingly quick. This can be a little unnerving, 
because you can sit for ages racking your 
brains for a word, and ihc computer will 
immediately inform you that it's incorrect, and 
then quickly put another word down and begin 
waiting for your next go. 

Each player has a time limit of 25 minutes 
for each game, which can't be changed, and 
which isn't very long for the average human. 
Fortunately, an option is included which 
enables you to adjust the average response 
time of the computer player- effectively a 
handicap system.

The Options screen, while not a rivetting read, 
makes a change from views of the board. 

Depending on your lexical ability, whether 
you're a crossword master or you spell seize 
'sieze', there is a difficulty level to suit you. 
There are 12 different settings available, from 
a player with a basic vocabulary of around 
2.400 words, to a Scrabble master who can 
pluck a word at will from anywhere in the 
huge dictionary - which includes many two- 
Icttcrcd words such as 'AE\ AA". 'AB' and 
'/(>' (essential if you're going to rack up 
plenty of points). 

By no* you may have noticed that I 
haven't mentioned the rules of Scrabble. 
That's because just about everybody in the 
world knows how to play Scrabble (if you 
don't, then go and ask your mum or your 
grandad or somebody, because they're bound 
lo know*. Suffice to sav that it involves several 
players taking turns to throw letters on to a 
board to form a crossword, and scoring points 
related to the complexity of the words formed. 

Vile jumpers 

OK, OK. I realise that Scrabble isn't exactly 
the sexiest game on earth, and that's probably 
partly because the president of the British 
Scrabble Association is in fact Gyles 
Brandreth. See what I mean? You shouldn't let 
this put you off though, because if you like 
using words, especially in crossword-type puz- 
zles, there really is no better game than this. 
And if you need to pep up your English vocab- 
ulary, it'll help you along nicely in that 
direction loo. 

With tons of options, including a practice 
mode with a good help facility, and several 
save- game slots so you can continue a game at 
a later date, it makes an excellent opponent 
and referee for any Scrabble player, beginner 
or otherwise.

Panasonic 



Quiet tt« 




We researched the colour printer market in great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful graphic output, yet at an affordable price. 
We found the perfect printer in the Panasonic KX-P2 1 80 + KX-P2 123 quiet printers. 

We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer, you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with it. We found that too, 
in 'Wordworth', yet at a retail price or £129.99 we thought that might be o little too expensive on top of your printer purchase! So together with Ponasonic we decided 
to give a copy of 'Wordworth' free with every Panasonic printer. How's that for added value?

Knightmare 

Mindscape ■ £14.99 
Reviewed AF3 1 -85% 




Here's one of the first people you meet. Offer him the hand of friendship and he 
refuses to shake it. So kill him with extreme violence, just to teach him. 

Fans of either the Eye Of The Beholder series or Captive will instantly be at 
home with Knightmare. Though where home is. is a bit of a mystery. 

Roughly based on the TV show of the same name, you must guide a 
band of humanoids through a series of tough challenges, all related to one 
fantasy theme, in order to, well, win, really. The game is done in a sort of 
3D, with the mouse clicking your movement and fighting for you when 
monsters appear. 

It's huge, it looks marvellous and it's 
extremely difficult although there's a sort 
of wizardy fellow to help you out a fair bit.

Moonstone 

Mindscape ■ £14.99 
Reviewed AF32 - 59% 




Hooray! Down the pub again. It's turning into a regular crawl, is this month's 
Cheap and Cheerful. And there's even some rather nice dice-playing as well. 

Billed as 'so much fun you'll die', Moonstone has got a bit of on-box hype 
to live up to. If the truth be told. I didn't die during or after playing it 

It's the older, storybook-style of gaming, with gorgeous still graphics 
and maps showing little guys wandering through the Iron Hills and so on. 
Knightmare definitely has the exciting realism edge of games like this. 

But as a fantasy escape, this is certainly worth a look. It's not really as 
deep or some would say as boring as many, but it looks very teenage bed- 
room wall, which must be a good thing. Not 
bad at all, Moonstone, it has to be said. It's 
just lacking slightly in atmosphere.

Legend 

Mindscape ■ £14.99 
Reviewed AF36 - 88% 




There's got to be something good about a game in which you can go down the 
pub. Sucking the Amiga's expansion port gives you a slight taste of beer, too. 

Similar to Moonstone, Legend is the better of the two. It's got plenty of 
atmosphere and a big chunk of tedium-free plot to get you in the mood. 

The freedom of Legend, and. indeed all such games is limited because 
each location is set and should be visited in the correct order if you're 
going to be finishing it properly. Trying new ideas out doesn't yield good 
results in the way you'll find in an Eye of the Beholder-style game. But this 
is a minor point and in fact Legend is an enjoy- 
able romp through the misty lands of people 
who light too many joss-sticks and should 
get out more often instead.

Storm Master 

Daze ■ £12.99 
Reviewed AF33 - 90% 




Not so much a pub, this. More of a wine-bar, possibly like those you find in cen- 
tral London. There does seem to be a waitehng service provided, though. 

Twin dynasties have been fighting through the centuries on the planet of 
Urgaa. The reason for this never-ending battle has been forgotten. 

Anyway, you're the only person capable of resolving this violence. You 
must do this by talking to blokes who appear on the main menu and give 
you info on the enemy's forces, economy and general position. 

You can monitor and tweak any aspects of your own land, economy 
and all military matters. There's also a 3D combat section for when you 
decide to kick some ass. 

Storm Master is fun. You just have to be 
the right sort of person to fully enjoy it.

Dune 



Reviewed AF36-79% 




Nothing to do with pubs, this guy looks like 
the sort who only drinks Real Ales. 



Epic book, epic film, er, quite 
big game. Dune is an adven- 
ture where you must travel 
around the world of Arrakis, 
or Dune rf you prefer, sorting 
stuff out, getting a grip on 
the Spice trade and control- 
ling people's minds in order 
to get rid of the nasty 
Harkonnen and that. It's a 190 
minute film, so don't expect 
to explain the film here! 

Anyway, the game is 
visually marvellous, pretty 
playable and good entertain- 
ment especially if you've got 
a few days to spare.

Jimmy White's Snooker 



Not much of an adventure, 
this. More of a snooker game, 
in fact. You can play another 
human or three skill levels of 
computer opponent and the 
idea is to beat them. Its all 
done in astonishing 3D. with 
amazingly accurate algo- 
rithms and stuff - all 
included at no extra cost. 

There's a trick-shot 
option, and if you're a fan of 
snooker, this game won't 
seem like a poor quality 
effort trying to cash in on the 
sport's popularity. Archer

wrote it beautifully. A mar- 
vellous game and no mistake. 




Hey, people play snooker in pubs, don't they? 
Well. Pool actually. But this is snooker, here.

BUDGET REVIEWS 







Crystals of Arborea 



Daze ■ £9.99 

Not previously reviewed 




Look at the size of that beer-garden. Our intrepid heroes, having finished their 
orange juices and lemonades, decide which direction to have a quest in. 

This game boasts over 16,000 locations to visit. Fine, but some are more 
interesting than others, it has to be said. The plot is truly bot-puckering. 
Morgoth. the Lord of Chaos has blighted your once-beautiful land with all 
sorts of unpleasantnesses. People go about their daily lives under a cloud 
of doom, which casts a shadow of despondency over the stricken, despair- 
ridden lands of total and utter futility. 

And once more, you're just the man or woman to mend this situation. 
You must travel around the map of death, visiting all these dreadful loca- 
tions in order to find the key to making 
everyone happy again. Simple. Not really. 
Fairly long-winded, not brilliant and in fact 
rather a poor attempt. Still, it's cheap.

Metal Mutant 

Daze ■ £9.99 

Not previously reviewed 




Obviously Daze were going through something of a green period when they 
wrote this. Either that or their colour palette got stuck in some way. 

Oh dear. Someone's seen Transformers on telly and nicked the idea. In this 
horizontal-scrolling shoot-em-up you play a robot thing which has got the 
power to change from a vaguely humanoid shape into a tank, a sort of cat 
and a large penguin or something. 

Each of these mutations will come in useful at some point in the 
game, and you must be aware of the relative powers that each incarnation 

has. 

But in order to use all the robot's forms properly, you must 
get pretty far into the game. And that's fairly unlikely because it's not 
really very good.

Trivial Pursuit 

Hit Squad ■ £7.99 
Not previously reviewed 

So what exactly are you 
expecting? It's a load of ques- 
tions on different topics, isn't 
it? But at only eight sovs, it's 
a sight cheaper than buying 
the real thing. 

This version has also 
got charming little graphical 
interludes which aren't of 
course, included with the 
board-game. 

The questions are pretty 
much as you'd expect from 
the board version, although 
there's a lot less of them and 

Lord knows whether they're exactly the same. 

And, er, that's about it for this. A lot of fun if 

you've got a load of people round to have a 

go. And you can't cheat as easily, either. 




Remember that bit from Filthy Rich and 
Catflap? Well insert it here and have a laugh

Terminator 2 

Hit Squad ■ £7.99 
Reviewed AF29 - 60% 




Did you spill my mercury? (Well that's what 
the T1000 Is made of, isn't he?) 



There's fighting, there's driv- 
ing along in various vehicles 
and there's more fighting. 

Terminator 2 is a stan- 
dard multi-level licence. 
Competently done, but not 
breath-taking, it's a much 
more sensible game at this 
price, though especially now 
all the fuss about the movie 
has died down. 

The game tries to recre- 
ate various scenes throughout 
the film, like the one in the 
hospital corridor where the 



two Terminals first meet. There's a beat-em-up 
and shoot-em-up game, a couple of puzzlers 
and a driving game. Not as good as the 
Batman licence though.

Test Drive 2 - The Duel 



Hit Squad ■ £7.99 
Reviewed AF27 - 58% 




This is a Porsche 959. It's the nearest you'll 
ever come to driving one. so look closely. 

but there's something lacking which you feel 
could have been worked on. Look at Formula 
1 Grand Prix, for example. 



Fancy a bit of 30 driving, do 
you? If you don't own a car, 
this might do instead. You 
can drive a Porsche 9S9 or a 
Ferrari F40 (some choice, eh?) 
and the idea is to race the car 
you haven't chosen You're on 
public roads and there art 
other users around. Accidents 
are a perennial possibility. 
The trouble with Test 
Drive 2 is that the sense of 
speed isn't quite enough to 
excite you. It's smooth, slick 
and nicely done otherwise. 



Quattro Power Machines 

CodeMastersl £7.99 

Not previously reviewed 

Four games, each packed with horsepower, apparently. Let's 

see which can burn off the rep-laden Sierras at the lights... 



Violator 




If you're In the market for a vortical scrollrr, 
«*•!!, ••*, good luck and b«t wishes. 



Grand Prix 




Why don't they build real racing circuits lik« 
this? It'd be mildly entertaining, probably. 

Pro Powerboat 



More of a SWTV-stylc 
blaster than a car game 
this. It's pretty diverting is 
Violator. Once you start to 
play, you'll find it hard to 
stop. The graphics aren't 
magic, but the difficulty is 
set just about right. 

Rather an enjoyable 
game. It has a slight PO 
feel, but if you can live 
with that you've got a 
game to enjoy at least 
until EastEnders is on. 



Aha. A Badlands 
SupcrSprint style- game. 
There's a circuit on each 
screen, and some micro- 
scopic cars to race round 
them in. Nigel Mansell 
would never have retired 
from F1. had he had those 
sort of circuits to drive. 

Not particularly edify- 
ing, but not rubbish. Not 
worth a great deal more 
ink than this, though. 




Powerboat? Pro-Zipping Down Thin Passages 
would be a better title, in a sense. 



Nitro Boost Challenge 



Pretty essential to the 
powerboating fraternity, 
this is a bit of a laugh. It's 
a scrolly sort of steer- 
around game, and if s not 
going to set the world on 
fire, primarily because it's 
set on water, which, as 
every chemistry student 
knows, doesn't burn. 
Despite being made up of 
hydrogen and oxygen, 
apparently. 




It's a tough life, being a stuntman. They get paid 
a lot though, so don't be too sympathetic ah? 



This is basically more of 
the same. You didn't really 
expect anything else did 
you? It's a bright colourful 
scroller in which you nitro 
your way through the lev- 
els, posing as a stuntman. 
Or boost your way through 
them, it's up to you. Either 
way, if s simple and it 
must be pitched at those 
blessed with a terminally 
high boredom thresholds.

OK, everybody knows that there's a 
cheat for this brilliant pool simulator, 
but no-one except Archer himself 
knows what it is. Now though, he has 
revealed the code exclusively to 
GameBusters - and here it is! 

Go into trick-shot mode, then 
type in the code V12F. You should 
hear a double-click if you've entered 
it correctly. Now go into the DEMO 
menu and you should see a new 
menu. Select the players for a demon- 
stration mode and make the 
computer play itself. The scores will 
be logged to disk automatically, so 



Over to Chas 'n' Dave: "Snooker loopy, Nutts arc we; me and him 
and them and me; there's no end to what you can do. with a load 
of balls and a snooker cue..." OK, so it's pool, who's complaining? 

you can leave the game playing itself while you go off and, er, have a bath or something. This way you 
can find out the actual abilities of each player, and find out just how good they are at playing pool! 

Also, Mike Woozley of Swansea writes: "If you are about to lose against the computer while play- 
ing 9 Ball, press the Esc key just as it is lining up for the last remaining ball. This will cause the cue ball 
to follow the 9 ball into the pocket leaving you to aim and pot the ball to win."

GAME TIPS 




Blue Byte/Kompart ■ 0727 868005 
Reviewed AFA3 - 94% 



So you want some tips for this brilliant strategy game? Look no further, as the German 
authors Blue Byte provide you with more tips and codes than you could waggle a twig at... 






■ While playing on the German side, collect your 
unils around ihe artillery, and wail for the approaching 
enemy (A). Then it's very easy lo slop ihe enemy sol- 
diers while ihe artillery is gelling stronger. 

■ Be aware of the short range of the light artillery, 
and that the heavy and medium artillery can'l shoot 
one round when they have moved. Let's say you have 
a very strong artillery and 1B1 the enemy is waiting 
for this unit to move before attacking, and (C) your 
heavy artillery gels in the range of the enems "s hea\ \ 
artillery. You should move light artilleries next to ii. 
and wait for the next round. When the heavy artillery 



Jr 



isn't able to react in the next round, your lighi artillery- 
can, and covers the from range of hca\ > artillery. 

■ Repair damaged units. One fatal mistake when 
playing Baltic Isle was producing new unils, and let- 
ling the experienced ones fight in the frontline. Save 
your energy and spend on repairs. An experienced unil 
such as Elite Infantry can withstand most enemy tanks 
for at least two rounds until the reserve arrives. 

■ Bunkers are difficult lo lake even with air support. 
It's not uncommon for even the best "warriors' lo lose 
their best troops while taking the enemy's HQ because 
they forgot about the bunkers. 



■ When producing units, always make planes <D< 
Planes can only be attacked by Flak Unils or Elite 
Infantry, and they're the mosi important in ihe game. 

■ Try lo dcstro\ the anti-aircraft unils first Don't be 
afraid of aeroplane losses at ihe beginning. Sure, it's 
important to recreate the air squadrons, bui because the 
computer will mainl) build infantry it's important that 
ihe anti-aircraft sites arc destroyed early on. 






■ If the situation is hopeless then try and: collect 
your remaining unils. make sure you have more than 
one infantry, then set one infantry lo ihe from and hold 
the others back E When you attack, the computer 
will try lo destroy the infantry, while you can position 
your artillerv and bomb him into the dusi. 

■ Keep your strong units in motion, and save them 
from enemy attack. This enables you to open more 
than one front ami entangle the enemy. 

■ Use your planes to weaken approaching troops 
while >-iill out of reach for ihe artillerv. 

■ The besi w&) to win is lo hold the positions you 
have at the beginning of the game. Weaken the enemy 
irtJops whenever you can. and then attack. 
Strategically. History Line is a rather more defensive 
game than Halile Isle.

1. Keep your tee 
shot on the left

position. 



2. You can alter

set-up here. Hit 
diagonally 
across the tee. 



3. A par five

this par five.

the tee shot

OH NO! 
IT'S THE PATHETIC TIPS! 

Well. I'm disappointed. We only have three crap 
tips for you, dear reader, because it seems that 
only sane people have been sending them in. 

Worry not however, for the tips we have 
are rather amusing (if maybe a little contrived). 
Here they are then: 

Kevin Edwards of Birkenhead writes: "I 
have a universal cheat which will work for ALL 
shoot-em-ups. When the game begins, simply 
press the fire-button to kill the monsters, thus 
allowing you to progress beyond." Read Viz do 
we, Kev? 




This Is the situation. You're confronted by a large 
«nd horrific monster. Try and kill It by shooting H. 

Becky Hughes of Bromsgrove comes in with 
this extremely bizarre tip for MicroProse's 
Formula One Grand Prix. She says: "Enter a race, 
then make your car indestructible. Drive back- 
wards around the track, and smash into each car 
as it comes along, until you have nobbled all of 
your opponents. Now you can simply turn 
around, go the right way around the track, and 
win the race easily!" Thanks, Becky! Have an At 
enamel pin badge. 




Isn't Nigel doing well over in America. Just goes to 
prove that It's the driver and not the car, right? 

Lastly, we have Gareth Watt of Dundee: "I 
have discovered another exciting key combo 
which you can perform in Monkey Island 2. 
Instead of holding down both Amiga keys and 
both Art keys, try holding down both Amiga 
keys and the Ctrl key. The screen goes white and 
the computer resets. Spooky or what?" Yes, 
Gareth, very clever - I don't think! Oh, by the 
way, using the word 'spooky' is neither big or 
clever. Anyway, have an exclusive and priceless 
Amiga Format pin badge for your crap tip. Until 
next month, keep 'em coming! 




"Stranded on an Island, branded a fool, what will 
they say. Monday in Whitby" sang the Captain.

GAME TIPS 









You want cheats for your Amiga games? You got it. You want help for 
that taxing puzzle? You got it. You want a burger? Then nip down to Burger King.

If you're looking for Atlantis, 
you should cast your eye on me. 



CRETE TIRS 

I've come to a 
halt in the caves 
under the island 
of Crete in 
Indiana Jones 
and the Fate of 
Atlantis. I have 
the gold box and 
the two beads of 
orichalcum, but I 
can't find my 



way out You're my only hope! 

Tom Gooding 
Lincoln 

OK, you need to go back down the first elevator 
to where you left Sophia, then walk through the 
door at the back. Tell Sophia she won't fit, that 
its narrow, and that she'd only fit through with 
luck. Go through the doorway and up the stairs. 

Use the amber fish, talk to Sophia, then ask 
her to give you the necklace. Tell her you need to 
hide it do as she says, then tell her that you 
want to put it in the gold box. Go into the next 
room, down some steps, then use the amber fish. 
Use the ship rib on the wall, and walk through 
the door on the right. Use the sunstone, then the 
moonstone, and finally the worldstone. 

Line up the rising sun with the horns, then 
the waning moon and the city with darkness, 
then press the spindle. Walk through the door, 
don't argue with Kerner, and give him the 
stones. Use the ship rib on the rocks to the right 
then walk down to the submarine. 

Thanks to Janine Hill of Manchester - write 
in and tell us which Psy gnosis game you want! 



BIZARRE INC 

Normally you get requests for cheats lo help complete 
iMines, but I'm asking for a cheat thai will make 
Sensible Soccer harder! This is because I find thai all 
I he teams arc too easy lo heat after a little practice. 

Peter van der Spoel 

Holland 




ErtgUnd may have won the World Cup in 1966. but the 
Sensible Soccer World Cup is going to the Faroe Islands. 



Well, there isn't really an official cheat to make the 
same more difficult, hut you could always try one of 

the following: 

1) Turn your TV/monitor off while playing. 

2) Turn your joystick upside-down while playing. 

3} (let your mum to play, then go and stand in the 
bathroom and shout directions to her in Swahili. That 
one's a hitch. 



SING 



RAINBOW 



I have reached Monster Island in the game Rainbow 
Islands, and collected all the jewels, hut I can't get past 
the Dracula at the top of level 12. Does collecting all 
the jewels make any difference to your progression to 
the fourth level? 

Uz GKtens 
Sheffield 

Getting past Dracula is much too difficult, so yes. you 
must collect the jewels in the order of the rainbow 
(Red, Orange. Yclhiw. Green. Blue. Indigo. Mold) to 
open the door. Then jump into the door to progress 




Bub and Bob. or Bob and Bub? Or Dweeb and Droog? I'm 
not sure, but it's easy to find out with the above codes. 

NEXT SAMURAI 

I'm pulling my hair out trying to gel past level eight of 
First Samurai. After completing all eight levels 
(including the cnd-of-lcvel guardians) in the correct 
order, my Amiga tells me to insert disk two which is 
already inserted. No amount of joystick waggling 
seems lo have any effect - is ii something I'm doing 
wrong or does my Amiga simply hate me? 

C A English 
Syston 

Mi. I assume that you have First Samurai from a UBI 
Soft compilation Apparently a few of the disks pro- 
duced were faulty, and this unfortunately caused the 
machine to hang up after level eight. 

All is not lost, though - simply jnick up youi disks. 
and send them to L'BI Soft at Finchtey House. 707 
High Road. North Finchley, London. NI2 OUT. and 
they will replace them for you 



ALIEN BUG 

Please, please could you help me with level eight in 
Alien Breed Special Edition 'uy.' Where do I find duel 
three to proceed to level nine.' Also, how do I get to 
the room on level eight with the two free men inside? 

Tim Ridgers 
North wich 




If you're stuck in level eight, it could be because of a 
bug. Who better than Amiga Format to help you out? 

Both of these problems arc caused by a graphic hug in 
some copies of Alien Breed " l )2. which went our in a 
had batch, It can he fixed by using a small program 
which we included on the \F43 Coverdisk. tailed 
Alien Breed Fix. If you haven't got issue 43, it's still 
available from Amiya Formal back issues (Page l\S> 



Please print a cheat tor \rkanoid 2. I realise thai it's u 
old game and put an end to my frustration. 

Mark Sampson 
Waterlooville 

Here's a list of cheats that may. or may not, work: 

I) Press Caps Lock then type DAUYSS or DEBBIE 

S' during play for infinite lives. 

1) Type PETERJOHNSONWANTSCIIEAT or 

MAG/MA on the title !< recti, then press S to open 
the exits at any point; 

it Type ROBOCOPPER' on the title screen to acti- 
vate the continue mode; 

4) Hold down the left mouse button while loading for 
an interesting commercial break. &

Get AMOS for cheap 

This tutorial is designed to help you get the most from the pro- 
gramming language AMOS. If you don't have AMOS, but would 
like to have a go at programming your Amiga, you're In luck, 
because Amiga Format featured the complete AMOS program 
on the January 1993 Coverdisk. 

Now. If you didn't buy that issue, don't worry because you 
can still get your hands on the truly spectacular AMOS lan- 
guage. Turn now to Page 158 and buy it from back issues. 




The main title screen was created using DPsmt IV. The teat was anti-aliased by hand and a single 
bullethole created by freehand using the magnify mode. Then the same hole was stamped five 
times across the screen. 



Getting the most from 
your AMOS 

It's time for another dip into the AMOS programming language, this time we show you how 
to program your own bug-blasting shoot-em-up. Just complete the easy-to-follow steps. 




109 



So far this series has covered how you go about 
selling up an AMOS program: an elementary 
game of the Pong variety and last issue a hind) 
little database utility. But what's this months tutorial 
about? What do the words SWIY. Project X and Snm\ii 
n mean to you? They're all shoot-cm -ups. and that's 
the genre you're going to be programming in; it won't 
quite be of the calibre of the aforementioned, but 
\ou'\c got to start somewhere, I mean the ttrsi cat 
Enzo Ferrari designed wasn't a 250 GTO you know! 

Workin' on a game gang 

Constructing games in AMOS is easy, because you can 
create graphics and sounds elsewhere and incorporate 
them in your AMOS programs. Graphics can be made 
in Deluxe Paint or any other IFF paint program; sprites 
can be built using sprite editors and sounds can be 
sampled using an) sampler, ["he results ol these 
exploits can be installed as part of an AMOS program, 
saved into memory banks and hidden in memory. 

Once you've loaded Amiga IFF graphics with the 
LOAD IFF command you can pack them away into 
memory banks, using the SPACK command, like so: 

Spack To 6 

which packs the contents of screen into memory 
hank o. To unpack the spacked memory bank on to the 
screen you just have to type: 

Unpack 6 To 

and after a few milliseconds waiting while the screen is 



decompacted. it appears on the screen. The sounds in 
your game can be similarly tucked awuy from sight. 
using sample banks The sound samples can be made- 
using your own sampler, or gleaned from a BBS or PD 
disk. You make them into a sample bank using 
Samplc.Bank.Maker. AMOS on AMOS disks, or the 
sample hank program w ith Easy AMOS. 

Sprite banks can be created b\ designing the 
sprites in DPaint and grabbing them using either the 
\\td\ sprite grabhei or SpriteX. 

BugHunt 

This month's program has all the above features, and 
splurges together to make a bug-blasting shoot-cm-up. 
The aim of the game is to blast the bugs and score 
points. It's deliberately elementary to allow you to 
grasp the basic concepts. Suggestions on how to make 
the game more complex will be covered next issue. 
I) But on with some bug blasting - firstly load the 
sprites, sound samples and IFF graphics from disk. 
Load AMOS, and with the AF Coverdisk in DR): hit 
the ESC key to get to Direct mode. Type: 

DirS="ofO:AMOS - Material/* 

Then type: 



Dir 



and a listing of the contents of the AMOS drawer on 
your disk will come up on the screen. 
You ui|| see files, called: 



title. 

sp: . ibk 

sounds . abk 

To load in the IFF file, type: 

Load FT "tit . f , 

The picture will load on to the screen. Now t\pe: 

Spack To 6 

2) Alter a pause, the screen will be packed in the mem- 
ory bank. You can find out if this is true if you type: 

r.Bank 

and a list of the memory banks will be shown. 

3) Next you load the sprites and sounds by typing: 

Loa< I "spi .abk", 1 

Load "sounds. abk", 5 

the comma 5 means the abk file will be loaded into 
bank 5. 

Type in the listing. First to hide the cursor and the 
pointer, plus mm off the Hashing colour, colour 3:

The picture is unpacked from memory and on io the 
screen. To accompany the title screen play back the 
sound sample number I - a gunshot. In this instance 
play it last five limes using a tor/next loop: 

For 1 = 1 To 5 : Sam Play 15,1,20000 : 
: Next I 

4) SAM PLAY can be used in two ways. II you say 
SAM PLAY I it plays the first sound sample in bank 5 
at the playback speed it was recorded. If you say SAM 
PLAY I5.I.2(KKK) however it plays sample one at a 

f re quency of 20.000. 

5) After a pause, you're into the main bit of the game. 
The game screen is a 16-colour 320.200 (NTSC m/c 
for US dudes) screen. Turn on DOUBLE BUFFER 
which is a special screen buffering mode for sprite 
moves, making them smoother. Then say: 

Get Sprite Palette 

in order to grab the palette of the sprites you have cre- 
ated. (GET SPRITE PALETTE works for bobs or 
sprites, don't forget this.) And then finally you set your 
score to 0. and that ends the basic set-up of the 

Bughunl game. 

The main loop 

1 1 Each time the game starts afresh it needs [o get hack 
Io ihis point, so give it a label. 

NEWGAME: 



Each time the game comes around to this point it resets 
all the variables to their initial states, which is why it's 
usually called "initialisation"! 



LTVES=3 : BUGS=5 : SX-50 
AX=320 : AY=30 
MISSFLAG=0 : SHIPFLAG=0 



SY=100 



ALIENFLAG=0 



Obviously LIVES and BUGS are the amount of lives 
you have for each game and the amount of bugs to 
hunt. SY. SX. U and AX arc the start points of the 
ship and the aliens. 

2) After printing the score and wailing for you to read 
them, draw a random slarfield on screen: 

- 15 
For 2=1 To 50 

P.nd<320) .Rndl200) 
Next Z 

This means thai 50 dots with colour 15 (white) arc 
plotted randomly to any location between and 320 
across and (I and 2(H) down. 

3) The next routine is the main program loop, which 
repeats until BUGS=0 or L1VES=0. either you are 
dead or all the bugs arc. The first bil looks at the joy- 
slick and moves ihe ship in the direction you choose, 
using JLEFT. JRIGHT etc. The variables for sprite co- 
ordinates in the program are called SX and SY for the 
SHIP. AX and AY for the aliens, and MX and MY for 
the missiles. 



If Jright(l) and SX<320 Then SX=SX*2 

If Jup(l) and SY>0 Then SY=SY-2 

If Jdown(l) and SY<199 Then SY=SY*2 

For example if the slick is sensed pointing left, then 2 
is subtracted from ihe horizontal variable SX. moving 
ihe ship two pixels to the left. This routine also checks 
to see if you arc trying to stray off Ihe screen. 

Any X co-ordinate less than 30 and you slay put. 
any greater than 320 you slay put. and the same is true 
in the Y axis. Having figured out if there's anything 
needed to be done, the ship sprite is positioned on the 
screen with: 

Bob 1,SX,SY,1 

4) If you're blown up by hitting anything (checked in 
another pan of ihe program) a flag called SHIPFLAG 
is set lo I . The next line to sec if (his flag is set and if it 
is it rubs out the sprite and resets SX and SY to the 
start position. 



If SHIPFLAG=1 Then Bob Off 1 
SY=100 



SX=50 



Repeal 

and SX>30 



:. SX=SX-2 



The next line lakes away 2 from the X position of ihe 
aliens, and puis it back in AX. This means that each 
lime the program loop goes around the aliens step for- 
ward two pixels. 

5) Next you have io check to see if the aliens have 
managed lo reach ihe edge of the screen. AX position - 
30 should do it; make sure ihe sprites are completely 
off the screen.

MASTERING AMOS 



112 







The action takes place on the main game screen. The 
start ield is created with a random dot-plotting routine, 
all the other graphics were created in the SpriteX sprite 
designer program and saved as a sprite bank. 

t AX=-30 Then AL:enfLAG=0 
If A»-30 Then SHIPFLAG=0 
If AX=-30 Then AX=320 

You have to test three times, once lor reselling the flag 
for the ship, once for rescuing the flag for the aliens. 
and once to rest the aliens to the other side of the 
screen by setting their X co-ordinate to 320 again. 
61 OK, once you've checked for the joystick and the 
position of the aliens as ihcy tramp across the screen. 
then check for the fire-button. This is slightly trickier, 
because you have to check only once for the fire-but- 
ton, and then stop checking once it has been detccled 
or you get a horrible M.u.c;i!o rasping noise. To guard 
against this, set a flag as soon as the button is pressed: 

:: Fired) and MISSFLAG=0 Then Sam Play 
1 : MISSFLAG=1 : Bob 2,SX,SY,,! : MX=SX 
: MY=SY 

Once this flag is set. it can be tested for each time you 
look for the fire-button. This means that each time you 
press the fire-button it only fires once or twice a sec- 
ond instead of several hundred. Then you test to sec if 
a missile is active before you move it. If you don't lest 
this then you could find ghosth missiles whizzing 
across the top of your screen before the game starts. 

If MTSSFLAG=1 Then Add MX, 5 : Bob 

2, MX, MY, 2 : If MX>SX«-100 Then Bob Off 2 
; MISSFLAG=0 



subroutine _BOOM to explode the ship and take off a 
life. As soon as a collision is detected, a check is made 
to sec if the Hag is equal to 0. and if it is. the subrou- 
tine is activated. As soon as the subroutine is actioned. 
the Hag is set to 1 so the check is not made. The sec- 
ond line checks to see if the missile hits any aliens in 
the same way. 

91 If you hit an alien with your ship and you go boom, 
then it simply means you explode. If a collision is 
detected you arc sent to the subroutine which makes 
the ship blow up. 

_BOOM: 

Boom 

SHIPFIAG-1 

Bob 1.SX.SY.4 
Wait 10 
LIVES=LIVES-1 
Return 

l-irst you make a boom noise with one of the built-in 
explosion noises, then you set the SHIPR.ACi flag to I 
so no other collisions can be detected. Next the ship is 
replaced with image 4 from the sprite bank which is 
the explosion, and one life is lost by subtracting I from 
the LIVES variable. 

10) Now check how many lives or bugs there are left, 
and if cither of these variables is then you play the 
sound sample slowly to make a long booming noise, 
and turn off all the bobs using a little loop: 

Until LIVES=0 or 3UGS=0 
Sam Play 15,1,1500 
Wait 100 
For Z-l To 7 
Bob Off Z 
Next Z 
Goto NEWGAME 

The GOTO NEWGAME pan sends us back to the 
beginning to reset everything and stan the game again. 

Alien plotting 

1) Plotting the alien positions on screen, and keeping a 
note of which are dead is done by making an array 
called ALIEN! ) and storing the flags in it. At the start 
of the game you dimension an array of live locations: 

Dim ALIEN<5) 



P: 
SPACE-SPACE+30 
If SPACE>120 Then SPACE=0 
Next J 

As each alien is offset 30 pixels away from the one 
above, you skip to the label SKIP if an alien is dead, 
then add 30 to the variable SPACE which tells the 
computer where to print the next sprite, leaving a big 
gap where the sprite should be. Now even when an 
alien is dead the remaining aliens keep the same posi- 
tion in the wave. The subroutine _ABOOM or 'alien 
boom' says an alien is hit. and sets the flag for that 
alien in the ALIEN( > array to I . meaning it is dead. 

_ABOOM: 

Boom 
ALIENFLAG=1 

Then it turns off the missile sprite: 
Bob Off 2 

and checks to see which alien bought it. using the 
COMA) command. This returns the sprite number of 
the collision, and this number is used to set the flag in 
the array. 

D=0 

For A=3 To 7 

If Col (A) Then D=A 
Next A 

3) Then you need to find out where the explosion 
should take place, by seeing which alien got hit and 
selling the correct offset to place the explosion. 

If D=3 Then _OFFSET=0 

If D=4 Then _OFFSET=30 

If D=5 Then _OFFSET=60 

If D=6 Then _OFFSET=90 

If D=7 Then _OFFSET=120 

and finally the explosion is substituted for the alien 
which got hit by the missile, and the flag is set for that 
alien. Notice how the explosion is placed to match the 
alien that got hit. (In a more complex game with more 
random waves you would have to calculate the posi- 
tion of the alien more exactly.) 



7) Next there's the collision detection, where bobs I 
and 2 are checked to see if they are hitting anything. If 
Ihc flags are then they haven't just hit something and 
can safely blow up. 



If Bob Col (1,3 To 
Then Gosub _BOOM 
:i Bob Col(2,3 To 
Then Gosub _ABOOM 



7) and SHIPFLAG=0 



7) and ALIENFLAG=0 



8) More of _ABOOM in a minute, hut for now let's 
just say that both these lines check for collisions. The 
first line checks to sec if the ship (Bob I ) has collided 
with any aliens (Bobs 3 to 7). If it has then enter the 

TECH HELP 

If you have any initial problems with your AMOS 
Coverdisk or any technical problems with -AMOS 
itself, phone Europress Software on 0625 859333 
and ask for the Technical Help Dept. They wrote 
the program so they will know what to do if you 
go wrong. 



I.ach time the game resets you have to toggle all these 
flags back to O and do this with a link* loop: 

Fo: To 5 

ALIEN(Z}=0 

Next Z 

2) To print each alien on the screen you have to look at 
the arras, ami in ihe middle ol the program loop, you 
only print an alien up on screen if it's still active: 

For J=l To 5 

If EN(J)=1 Then Goto SKIP 

Bob J . . -SPACE. 3 

FURTHER READING 

If you want to read more about AMOS, we insist 
that you get the manual and examples disk from 
our mail order pages (Page 154); a snip at £13.95. 
You don't have AMOS'! Well, how about buying a 
back issue of Amiga Format 42 with AMOS free on 
the Coverdisk? 



Bob D. AX. AY -..OFFSET, 4 

ALIEN(D-2>=1 

Wait 10 

4» The reason you subtract 2 from the number of the 
sprite, which go from 3 to 7, is to get the right number 
of the array, which goes from I to 5. So flag I equals 
sprite 3. The wait command pauses for a fifth of a sec- 
ond to show the explosion before the game moves on. 

Bob Off D 

BUGS=BUGS-I 

SCORE=SCORE+KK) 

Before you return from the subroutine, you set the 
score, take one away from the number of alien bugs 
and turn off the alien which got hit. 

Once you've typed in BugHuni and played it for 

a while you'll probably start to yearn for something a 
little bit more adventurous complicated. And if you 
wait until next month, your yearnings will be satisfied 
because well show you how to make it a fully featured 
shoot-em-up! C&

ALL PRODUCTS & PRICES ARE CORRECT AT TIME OF GOING TO PRESS BUT ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY. 



AMIGA 1200 HARD DRIVES 



Before you buy, ask the question, is this 
a Commodore approved system, does it 
invalidate my warranty and if it fails will 
the Commodore authorised repair 
company, Wang UK visit my home, repair 
my system and not invalidate my 
warranty? 

Calculus are the first Computer Stores 
to offer official Commodore approved 
systems. Call your local Calculus Stores 
for further details. 



WHY CALCULUS IS DIFFERENT 



With so many computer dealers closing down it would 
be understandable if you worried whether sending 
money to a mail order company was the wisest thing to 
do. Of course not all mail order companies are a problem, 
there are a few that are well established. However, 

for total security why not call the Calculus number. 
We will not take your order or ask you for money, 
what we will do is give you details of your local Calculus 
Store, they will normally have in stock the product you 
wish to buy or will obtain it for you to collect the very 
next day. How's that for security! All that and expert 
help and advice as well as hands-on demonstrations 
that is why Calculus Stores is the largest independent 
computer group in the UK today and Nationwide!

SERIOUS REVIEWS 












Amiga Format has been voted magazine most Influencing 
buying decisions' by dealers In trade magazine Computer 
Trade Weekly tor three years running. That's because CTW 
know our reviews are the most trustworthy: what we say. you 
seem to agree with. 

Simply enough, that's because a) we know what we're 
talking about, and b) we're honest. We know what you want, 
because we're Amiga enthusiasts ourselves. And because 
we're Amiga experts, we test everything to the full and see 
how It performs. 

We don't review anything on-site' and we won't review it 
if it isn't finished just so we can claim an exclusive'. If a prod- 
uct is let down by poor features, If it's difficult to use or if it's 
overpriced, well tell you. But on the other hand. 
if It's well worth the price, or does something amazing, 
we'll make you aware of the fact - and look out for the 
Amiga Format Gold award that distinguishes a truly excellent 
product, one that really stands out from the crowd.

DESKTOP PUBLISHING 




Gold Disk return to the DTP 
front line with an update that 
looks set to re-establish them as 
the industry's heavyweights. 
Jason Holborn goes to press using... 



Professional Page KM . 8 ©1993 Gold Disk Inc. : Unt i 








Desktop publishing 



DKSPIIK <;OM) DISK'S popularity among 
Amiga users, ihc release of Soft Logic's 
PageStrcom 22 has given Gold Disk iheir first 
sniff of real competition. Although the previ- 
ous release of Professional Paxr offered 
numerous new features, man) reviewers sud- 
denly Slutted lo realise thai perhaps there was 

more to hie man ProPage. Even Marcus 
Dyson. AF editor and DTI* prolessional. had 
to conclude in his review oi PageStrcom 22 
thai "ProPage has finally met its match." 
In an attempt to re-establish themselves as 

the leading developers of Amiga DTP soft- 
ware. Gold Disk have launched Professional 

Page Version 4. possibly the program's most 
adventurous upgrade, Boasting main new fea- 
tures, including lull support for the new AGA 
chip set. ProPage J redefines the standards in 
Amiga DTP. Like Ihc previous release, it 
requires some hefty hardware just to gel 
Started - unless you own an Amiga with a hard 
disk .t\u\ at least 2Mb of memory, don't even 

think about buying ProPage, 

The major addition to PmPtiw -J is iis sup- 
port for the A(i A chip set's new 256-coIour 

screen modes. You aren't restricted lo the pre- 
vious 640-DV-5I2 pixel screen though - thanks 

to ProPage's increased integration into the 
Amiga's systems software, ProPage can be 
run in any one of the complete range of 
'Productivity' Amiga screen modes. 

It you really need the resolution, you can 

even run ProPage in SuperHiRes mode, which 
is particular!) impressive when used on an 
VGA-based Amiga. With 256 colours and a 
massive l.2XO-h\ol2 resolution, the screen 

display makes even QuarkXPress on the 

Macintosh ltn>k somewhat sad! 

Most of us at Amiga Formal were expect- 
ing ProPage** 256-colour modes to be slow - 
alter all. with X-hii planes of high resolution 
display to shift around, ii would have been 
excusable it ProPogv had slowed down. 

Surprising!), running ProPagt in 256-colour 

mode seems faster than running the previous 
l'< colour version on a standard Amiga. I don't 
know how Gold Disk have done it. bul 



Undoubtedly the best 

DTP program on the 

Amiga, it even rivals 

QvarkExpress on the 

Mac (the program this 

magazine is laid out 

with). An excellent 

new feature are these 

Post-il notes. They 

enable you to make 

notes lo yourself, but 

when you come to 

print out the printer 

ignores them.

PROPAGt 4 
is available from 
Silica on 
081-309 1111 



ProPage 4 seems considerably (aster than pre- 
\ ious releases. Add to this its ability to display 
bitmapped graphics in lull colour and ii seems 
as tl they've produced a DTP program lhat 
doesn't look like its running on a PC clone! 

The improvements to ProPage 4 aren't jusl 
cosmetic though. Alter AGA support, the most 
important improvement is ProPage 4*s ability 



10 edit DPSs (Double Page Spreads). Up until 
now. this was the one aspect of ProPage thai 
really stopped it from being a useful program 
for professionals. Although Gold Disk insisted 
thai most professionals don't need lo work on 
more than one page at a lime, this isn't the 
vase, and you'd be hard pushed to find a publi- 
cation lhat didn't make extensive use of DPSs 
- this review is a perfect example. 



PRINT DOCUMENTS AT YOUR LEISURE 

With version 4. there are two new utlities: the Picture 
Editor and ProSpool - a handy document printing utility 
that removes the need to boot ProPage every time you 
want to print. Written by Eyo Sama (the man behind Gold 
Disk's Font Manager conversion program). ProSpool 
enables you to print documents, plus, in true time-saving 
fashion. ProSpool can send documents to your printer, 
so you can print when you're elsewhere. 

The Picture Editor is designed as an integral part 
of ProPage, so you can send any bitmapped image held 
within a picture box oft for further editing. Offering the 
familiar DPa/nM ike user interface thai everyone's come 
to expect from graphics editors. It's a no-nonsense, mini 
paint program that offers all the usual paint tools, includ- 
ing freehand draw, boxes, circles and airbrushes. 
Surprisingly, the graphics editor doesn't support the 
AGA chip set. so it's somewhat less useful when used on an AGA Amiga. For quick illustrations though, its pres- 
ence can be a boon, saving you the hassle of having to load a program such as DPaint. 




Print those documents overnight with ProPage's new 
ProSpool utility.

Now ihai ProPage 4 can handle DPSs 
though, its poicniial has increased immeasur- 
ably. | : .ven PiiwStiTiim can't handle DPSs. so 

PmPuKc has not oni> matched the competi- 
tion, bul il has left it for dead. 

There are also several new layout tools and 
extra 'niceties* that make Propose a more 
enjoyable package to work with. The new font 
preview option is a welcome addition thai 
enables you to see a quick preview of any font 
before committing yourself to it. Pont support 
has been further extended with a new Kerning 
Pair adjustment facility that enables you t" 
control and customise the kern sellings for let- 
ter pairs in any of the Compugraphic fonts 
installed on your system. As more experienced 
Amiga DTP users will know, some characters 
don't lit together well ('A' and 'V*. for exam- 
ple), so being able to edit ihe kern setting of 
pairs of characters produces nealei lexi 

AGA support isn't the only new feature of 
ProPage 4 that first saw the light of da) in us 
tittle brother. PageSetter 3. PuxeSerter's fill 
pattern facility is also supported. This means 
you can assign user-definable fill patterns 
(monochrome only. I'm afraid) to any text or 
structured object. I'm not sure about this fea- 
ture alter all. monochrome fill patterns are 



The all-new ProPage... 

There have been considerable enhancements since the 
previous release, and here's a quick preview of a few 
of the new features you'll find on offer that now 
make ProPage 4 - and the Amiga - more than the 
equal of the DTP big boys... 



FONT PREVIEW 



■ 




The painful 
thing about 
Compugraphic 
fonts is that 
they can be 
incredibly slow 
to redraw on an 
unacclerated 
Amiga, so 
ProPagc's new 
Font Preview 
facility Is a wel- 
come addition 
to the program. 
Font Preview 

enables you to view a given font - so you don't have 
to put all the text into that font before actually com- 
mitting yourself to using It. 

PAGE SORTER 

<-».i f.y W I WW lHIBI fc t— BJ 0fApfln|i'c new 

Page Sorter 
comes in real 
~&] handy when 

you're working 
with documents 
containing more 
than one single 
page or a dou- 
ble page 
spread. What 
the Fage Sorter 
does is go 
through each 
page within the 
document and generate a mini representation (and 
Icon) of the page that can be picked up and moved 
around, enabling you to arrange the pages within a 
document with ease. 



DOUBLE-PAGE SPREAD SUPPORT

ProPage 4 now 
enables you to 
edit a double- 
page spread. 
This means that 



both illustrations and headlines across two pages - 
running over the gutter of the page. This is now a 
standard requirement in modern layout techniques, 
and you will find many examples In this issue of 
Amiga Format of how using pictures and headlines 
across a DPS can enhance design. 



nothing more than user definable half tones, so 
il would be better simply to assign a gre) scale 
to an object or text and let your primer driver 
handle generating the fill patiem for you. Oh 
well. I'm SUR someone w ill lnut a use for il! 

One unique new feature is the new 'Stick on 
notes' (based on those Post-It Pads that are so 
popular these days). Simpl) b\ clicking on the 

'notes' icon in the toots' icon sinp. ProPage 
automatically creates a small yellow text box 
that can be positioned anywhere on screen. 
Once you've pasted it down by clicking the 
left mouse button, you can type text into u. 
Because Slick -on notes are designed as 
reminders. ProPage ignores them when yom 
document is output i<> the printCl 

So, even il your document is covered in 
notes. o n |> the layout itscll is sent to press. 
Until recently, the only wax to temporarily 
mark a section of a layout was to print a DfOOl 
and write on that. 

The Page Sorter function allows you lo son 
pages wilhin a multiple-page document. For 
every page within a document, ProPage dis- 
play mini representations which can he 
picked up and arranged to sour heart's con- 
tent Obviously you need plenty of memory to 
take lull advantage oi this facilit) . 

Alter all. Page Sorter is best suited to the 
task of handling entire brochures and booklets. 
II you tried holding an entire magazine in 
memory at once (especially if it contained 24- 
bit pictures!, you'd end up with documents 
amounting to tens of megabytes in si/e (al 
least!). It would also have been nice if you 
could print the output from the Page Sorter. 

ProPage 4 has broken the mould. With its 
support for the new AGA chip set and the new 
facility to edit DPSs. ProPage -t represents Ihe 
most major advance in Amiga DTP software 
since ihe release of the original ProPage in 
1987. To call it re\oIuiionary would be putting 
it mildly! With its added power, it now 
demands to be compared with heavyweight 
packages that dominate the professional DTP 
market - run ProPage -f on an A4000 and 
you've got a DTP system that really is a viable 
competitor against established systems. 
Consider me impressed.

GRAPHICS FOR KIDS 




126 



NO 



Conventional paintbrushes are 
so passe, now kids want to 
draw their pix electronically, 
and boy has Gary Lord 
found a children's paint program 
for the new generation... 





Kids' paint package ■ £25.99 ■ Electronic Arts 



ELECTRONIC ARTS ARE ihc people who 
bring you Deluxe Paint, that consistently 
Amiga Formal-Gold winning paint ami graph- 
ics package that we continually refer to as the 
paint program to have for your Amiga. With 
the release of Kid Pix on the Amiga, though. 
EA have come across yet another phenomenal 
paint program, but this time it's for the kids - 
well sort of! 

Kid Pix was created solely with kids in 
mind - il was dc-iened by a dad. Craig 
Hickman, for his ihree-year-old son Ben. 
Apparent!) Men used to play with 'adult' paint 
programs but ended up in tricky situations, so 
what was called for was a more kid-friendly 
application. And Craig has certainly managed 
to come up w ith that. 

Once you've launched your copy of Kid 
Pix you are presented with a blank screen 
and then you're all ready lo start painting 
away. There arc just three menus at the top of 
the screen: File. Edit and a special Goodies 
menu, but all of these menus can be turned off 
if you opt for Small Kids Mode' - which is 
more or less kid-proof. 

Down the left-hand side of the screen are 
the tools with which to explore the program. 
As you click on each tool you are given vari- 
ous different options at the bottom o\ the 
screen, these change depending on which tool 
you click on. The interface is such fun lo work 
with, kids will have no trouble becoming 
familiar with the way the program works, and 
although Kid Pix comes with a comprehensive 
manual, you really don't need it - you can just 
get straight in and play away to your heart's 
content, creating even thing from fairly simple 
drawings, lo quite intricate and stunning pieces 
of work - even if you're just five-years-old. 



Here we can only 

show you the visual 

side of Kid Pix, and 

only give you a mere 

taster of them too. But 

the program's strength 

lies in its superb 

sounds and samples! 



KID PIX is available

grams before, hut none has managed to merge 
sound with vision as well as this. 

It's a great laugh exploring what each tool 
and its various options do to the pictures on 
screen, and that alone will keep you ama/ed 
for hours. But Kid Pix adds another dimension, 
and you and your children will be eager to dis- 



cover all the different noises and samples that 
are there to be uncovered. Everyone will have 
their own favourites. I love the stretching 
noise that the line-drawing tool makes, it 
matches the drawing move you're making so 
well, it sounds like a squeaky wooden door 
opening, as you stretch the line from one side 
of the screen lo another. 



The flrsl lool you're presented with is the 
Wacky Pencil (all of the tools have fun-look- 
ing icons that represenl what the tool does). 
Click on the pencil and the options at the bot- 
tom include various line (or a ihick circular 
brush) styles and widths. But it's when you 
first move the mouse across the screen to draw 
your first picture thai sou come across Kul 
Fix's piece de resistance: sound! Yes of course 
there have been other children's paint pro- 



CLIPPETY CLIP 




yiwMaiwufr 



If you don't think frogs should be green, then pop this 
wee fella into the Stamp Editor and pick a colour! 



Clip art is ready-made art. and Kid Pix has gallons of II (look 
at the bottom menu of this picture - and that's Just a small 
sample). This enables kids who haven't acquired proficient 
drawing skills yet to have a good play with real pictures - a 
bit like Fuzzy Felt when 'we were young. 

If you're not happy with the way Ihe clip art looks, and 
you want to change the colour of a whale from purple lo 
blue (the proper colour for whales as everyone knows) then 
just go to the Goodies menu and select Edit Stamp' and 
double click on the Stamp Icon. You can rotate, flip and re- 
colour, or even create an entirely new stamp If you so 
desire. The main criticism of Kid Pix, and it would be great 
If Electronic Arts could rectify this. Is that It can't load IFFs. 
Seeing as EA Invented the darn things, It's a bit of a let 
down, because you can't Import graphics from other Amiga 
packages, digitised pictures or creations from other paint 
programs. Apart from this criticism, Kid Pix will keep the 
young (and old) uns amused until the pigs, chickens, 
sheep and cows come home. 



GRAPHICS FOR KIDS 



I 












lotto: 




The graphics capabilities haven't been sac- 
rificed lor the sake of sound though. You'll 
find all that you'd expect from a children's 
puini package and then some! There's a more 
than adequate colour palette - 16 colours in 
total - and some wonderful (some would even 
say quite wacky in fact) painting options once 
you select the Wacky Brush! 

My personal faves are the Zig Zag line - 
the pattern is similar to the blip-blip pattern 
that the machine that goes ping' makes: 
Echoes - circles within circles, very reminis- 
cent ol Spirograph sets: Trees - draws your 
very own fractal forest, and if you hold down 
Ctrl while you click the mouse button it draws 
a real mighty oak of a tree; Drippy Paint - 
while you draw, the 'paint' dribbles down the 
page: Conncct-the-Dots - yes you can make 
your very own dot-to-dot picture, who needs 
paper eh? 

The only drawback with the Wacky Brush 
tool, though, is that there are no sounds with it. 
The thing is it's probably the one you go to 
first and so you're initially disappointed - but 
once you go on to discover the noises in some 
of the other options, you don't feel at all 
cheated, but it's certainly something thai could 
be considered for an update. 




And here's one that 
I made earlier... 

One off the best 
graphics features off 
Kid Plx is tho 
Electric Mixer. This 
picture has been 
splattered and 
affected with some 
clip art, and tho 
Wacky Pencil and 
Brush. Then the 
Broken Glass fea- 
ture has been 
clicked on, and has shattered the screen display. 
Check out the smiley faces, as the display has shat- 
tered. It has Invorsod the colours - a similar effect can 
be achieved if you click on Night and Day. 

Iff you've just been 
messing around, 
and you want to 
erase your work, 
just click on one off 
the erasers, this 
one Is the 
Firecracker - It 
blows your picture 
right off tho screen. 
You can also choose 
Fade Away; Drop 
Out - bits of the picture just drop out until there's 
nowt left; Count Down ■ you get a Thunderbirds-style 
count before your picture slides off the screen; White 
Circles - which gobble up your drawing! 





"^ " See the letter '%' in 

this drawing? Wall 
the whole alphabet 
has an accompany- 
ing soundtrack - in 
a real Sesam* 
y Street-style. And, 
although It's 
American, It does 
say "ted" and not 
"zee"! The best 
spoken sample has to be the one for the question 
mark though... It's a cute kid just saying "Huh?" - 
well cool! 

This started off as a 
Stu-stu-stu-stu-stu- 
studio Line drawing 
by Mondrian, but 
Kid Plx sculpts your 
drawing any way 
you like it! Checker 
Board literally turns 
your drawings into 
checkered patterns. 

But it doesn't 
stop there, the 
Wallpaper effect then divides the picture Into four, 
and If you click on it again. Iff divides It into oightl 
You can go even further in the manipulation depart- 
ment. If you're not happy then use the Splash, 
Venetian Blinds, Highlighter or Pattern Maker effects, 
let the artistic spirit run free! 




Once a drawing has hecn created wilh any 
of ihe drawing tools, and you fancy spicing il 
up a hit. then it's time to have a go wilh the 
Electric Mixer tool. It's so-named because il 
will simply mix up your picture in some 
wacky, weird and even abstract ways. Kids 
will reap hours of enjoyment trying out all the 
options available to them. At Ihe same lime 
they will discover more and more about the 
program, and new ways 10 manipulate their 
drawings - I certainly have! (just have a look 
at the column on the left 10 see the effects that 
can be achieved in seconds). 

So when a drawing's finished what then? 
Well if your kids arc happy with their artistic 
endeavours Ihey can save their pictures to disk 
and print them out for posterity. It's all very 
easy and what you see on screen is what prints 
out on paper. Obviously a colour printer is 
preferable, but mono printouts can look pretty 
good Ux>. the ones in the manual are black- 
and-white and they look great - though try 
explaining that to your nagging eight- year-old. 

If your budding computer graphic proicgds 
aren't happy with their drawings then they can 
simply erase using the "Erase" tool. Remember 
what a tedious task rubbing out your drawing 
was when you were young? Well the present 
generation won't find this to be the case with 
Kul Pix - because there are even options for 
erasing pictures. Firecracker is (he most 
impressive because your screen explodes in 
Pop Art-st\le vs iih accompanying sound: or 
you can go for the Midden Pictures eraser, it 
rubs out the drawing but displays, albeit 
briefly, some of the program's hidden secrets. 

Electronic Arts say of their latest paint 
package that "No one's loo young, no one's 
too old." and that's certainly true, everyone in 
the Amiga Formal ottice lias been huddled 
around the screen, just wanting another quick 
play! It's definitely a great entry-level paint 
package whatever your age. It may even be 
better suited for an Amiga bundle than Deluxe 
Paint is. And what better way to get your 
young ones interested in the Amiga? If they 
learn how to use a mouse, recognise icons, 
prim out their drawings and get an artistic 
slam before they even gel lo school age (hat 
has got to be A Good Thing' hasn't it?

TypeSmith 




Outline font designer ■ £ 1 29.95 ■ Soft-Logik 



FONT DESIGN PROGRAMS arc nothing 
now io the Amiga, but ihc release Of 
Workbench 2 ami desktop publishing pro- 
grams such as PageStream have made the 
Amiga bitmapped font somewhat redundant, 
These da\s users expect the best possible qual- 
ity from their DTP documents. Due to this 
need for "jaggie tree' results, the demand for 
"outline" fonts has increased so much that it 
was inevitable that someone would come up 
with a font editor for outline fonts. 

Soft-Logik's new TypeSmith is a powerful 
font editor designed specifically for outline 
fonts. Although heavily geared towards its 
own desktop publishing program, it is possibly 
the most complete font-related package ever 
released for the Amiga. Not only can ii be 
used to load, edit and even create outline fonts 
for use within PageStream, but it will happily 
load and save fonts in Adobe Type I. Type 3 
and best of all AGFA Compugraphic 
Intellifont format. TypeSmith i- compatible 
with the Intellifont formats used by Gold 
Disk's ProPage, PageSetter, PraDraw < and 
even Workbench versions 2 and .V In lad its 
font -conversion capabilities are so extensive 
that lhe\ make Gold Disk's Font Manager' 

K>ok rather sad! 

Using TypeSmith purely as a font conversion 

tool would be doing ii no justice at all though. 
lis real power comes from its ability to edit 
and create new typefaces using a selection of 
tools that wouldn't look out of place in a Struc- 
tured drawing program. Indeed by the very 
nature of outline fonts, the program is ver\ 
similar to a structured thawing program. Fach 
and even charactei within a font must be ere- 
ated separately using a combination of points. 
lines and be/ier curves. Don't let this put you

Designing your own outline fonts is an 
interesting prospect. Jason Holborn 

enjoys a character-forming experience with 
Soft-Logik's new font designer. 



font from a bitmapped font. You really do 
need Workbench 2 or 3 to get the very best 
from this facility though, simply because it 
needs to be able 10 scale the bitmapped font 10 
a more usable size (this isn't available under 
Workbench I..M. It would also have been bet- 
ter to have had some form of auto-irace 

facility (similar to Art Expression's BME 

Trace utility t for tracing bitmapped fonts. 
Although admittedly you would still have had 
10 clean up the font, this would still have 
offered a huge time saving. Ah well, let's just 
hope that Soft-l.ogik are reading this... 

Once you've designed your font, a quick 
click on the 'Font Preview ' option is all that is 
needed to test the font. This is by far one of 
the most useful features offered because it 
allows you to lest the kern and width settings 
of your font. If characters don't fit together 
properly, you can change their width and kern- 
ing within seconds. 

It's nice to see that Soft-Logik are keeping 
up with developments in the Amiga's operat- 
ing system loo - TypeSmith is fully AGA 
compatible and can even be set up to run in ■ 
"i her languages thanks to Workbench 2.1/3.0's 
'Locale' feature. Where interface design is 
concerned. Soft- Log ik are really on the ball! 



font charoclers are 
constructed using 
points, lines and 
bezier curves, in much 
the same way as a 
structured drawing. 



Judging a product such as this is very diffi- 
cult, simply because it's the first program of 
its type on the Amiga. I have no doubt that 
competitors will eventually appear, but they're 
going io have to be damned special to top this 
one. It's well designed, easy to use and offers 
the sort of extensive list of leaturcs ihat virtu- 
ally spoil its users. With products such 
as PageStream 22* An Expression and 
TypeSmith under their belt. Soft-Logik really 
are shaping up into a very major player within 
the Amiga marketplace. For DTP users ever) -

requited i<> create youi own font. 

Creating an outline font is surprisingly 
simple. Before you can start designing individ- 
ual characters, though, you need to feed in a 
number of important details about your font 
including its name, style, weight and font ID 
number. You then need io create a 'metric' file 
that will keep track of the lout's kerning infor- 
mation (how characters lit together) and 
dimensions. This sort of low -level font control 
is one aspect that reall> makes the program 
shine - if you're used to the son of limited 
control that bitmapped tout editors oiler (the 
Workbench Fed, for example), the power of 
TypeSmith is going to come as something of a 
shock to you! 

One inspired feature is its 'template' facil- 
ity that allows you to manually trace an outline

THE LAST FEW years have seen a trend towards 
cute characters and arcadc-siylc action in educational 
programs. This is fl great shame because so much edu- 
cational value is being lost in the search for 
user-friendly (or more to the point, supposedly child 
friendly) attraction. The trouble is the term 'child 
friendly* is being defined by adults (who often don't

you put a console in front of kids and load a copy of 
/.not or James Pond the kids will play them, but they 
do get pretty bored once they've cracked the game. 
And have you noticed any improvement in their aca-

to be taken to beat the end-of-lcvcl baddie?

This one is intended for kids who still need to be 
able to sec graphic representation of fractions rather 
than numerical problems. For instance it might show 
a picture of 10 differently coloured cakes and ask 
what fraction of them are green. It also points out 
when the child answers something like 'five tenths' 
that the result could be reduced and expressed as 
'one hair. 

The basis of this game is to find the pieces of a 
puzzle and collect them all one at a lime. There arc 
an awful lot of questions around to remove (he 
child's hard-earned gains en route.

I WU somewhat disappointed with this game. 
Having played and enjoyed it on the Atari ST. I've 
found the Amiga version full of rather sloppy pro- 
gramming, which is a shame because there really is 
an excellent game underneath. 

The basic story is that you meet a young, hun- 
gry, wee dragon who has carelessly gone and lost his 
lunchhox and needs sou to guide him home back to 
his cave. In order to do so you need to collect objects 
and give them to the correct guardians of passage. 
Adults will enjoy the humour and puns, but kids 
might be left out in the cold.

A traditional adventure game, will work the logic pro- 
cesses of the late primary or eorly junior child. 



EDUCATION 





One of the most popular formats for educational 
games in schools is the text or text/graphics adven- 
ture. Even the hardened |oystick jockey enjoys 
having to think and work a bit sometimes - like the 
refreshing change between playing Scrabble and I.udo! 
Coombc Valley Software are headed by a teacher 
and it shows. My own (mid-junior) kids have access to 



a wide range of educational software at home, covering 
all styles. Yet the game they keep coming back to is 
Maths Dragons. Why? Because they positively enjoy 
the challenge of combining the three Rs*. 

The text graphic adunlurc formal has been buried 
over the past few years in favour of more visual adven- 
ture games. Yet it oilers an ideal vehicle for presenting 
all sons of educational challenges at the same time as 
giving practice in reading, writing and spelling. Ii 
doesn't matter what the subject of the game is. be it 
geo gra p h y, science, maths or history, the child still 
needs to be able to read, write, and more importantly 
snell in order to understand instructions given, and 
instruct the computer back in return. 

For those new to computers who have never seen a 
text or text/graphics game, this is how they work. 
Imagine you have been dumped somewhere unfamiliar 
with a portable phone/modem and keyboard. Someone 
on the other end of the phone can sec what you are 
doing and where you are. They can tell you about your 
surroundings and can point out which directions to take 
to move out of your present location. 
So they might say something like... 

"You are in a clearing in a forest. Try walking 
towards the oak tree. A rope is dangling, so climb the 
tree lo investigate. There are possible exits east, south 
and north." 

You type something like 'climb tree'. Then your 
new location is described... 

"Nestling in a hollow of the branches is a small 
bo\ with a golden lock. It might be possible to open if 
you can find the key. " 

You then have to find the key to find the next exit. 
The Coombc Valley games work in this way. so while 
playing them kids have lo read instructions and descrip- 
tions, and then type in commands to progress. The

Aaooorgh! The odult dragon insists you answer a question 
correctly before proceeding. 

beauty of typing in the replies is that they don't realise 
they're learning keyboard skills at the same time as 
playing the games 

Although younger kids need a good deal of help in 
these games, older ones tell you to "get lost" if you try 
to help. Most of the games have user-selectable diffi- 
culty levels so they can be adjusted to the skills of the 
player. Try some of these games - they're inexpensive 
and excellent value, and aid reading, writing, spelling, 
maths, logic and social skills! <!>

You have gone to visit your young dragon friends. 
Unfortunately the train set that you look with you 
has been found dismantled, and the pieces arc scat- 
tered all across the cave complex by baby dragons. 
Your task is to try and collect all the train's pieces 
and rebuild the set. 

Trouble is. the adult dragons in the complex are 
very keen on making sure that academic standards 
arc kept up. If they come across you they will ask 
you questions on arithmetic, and if you get the 
answer wrong it will relieve you of your treasures 
and make you find them all over again. 





Simple arithmetic - and typing answers is helped by the 
child being able to copy spellings from the screen. 



REASONING WITH 
TROLLS |S- 12) 

If your kids like puns then this is for them. It's based 
on the story of the Billy Goats Gruff, but instead of 
one bridge to cross there are lots of them, each with 
a different troll. 

Each troll needs an object to let you past, the 
specific object identifiable by a pun on the troll's 
name. If you don't have the object, or don't know 
what to offer you arc instead presented with a logic 
problem i»> solve. The problems are varied and inter- 
esting - the sort of questions seen in intelligence 
tests, and it gives kids a good opportunity to Icam 
problem-solving techniques.

Based on the troditionol Billy Goats story, it has some 
decent puns to get the adults going too! 



Popular this one. For the first-lime adventurer this 
game offers a useful introduction. As you may have 
guessed the game's set in a house, and the player has 
to find their younger siblings' clothes, and dress 
them for the park, while also tidying up and putting 
away scattered toys. 

While this game is indeed enjoyable, my testers 
found it terribly frustrating to map because doors 
didn't always lead back to precisely where they 
came from. This is the only drawback, though, in 
what is an otherwise excellent game. But will it 
encourage kids to keep their rooms tidy? 





Ah Mum, do we hove to? Moke the kids tidy up the

3D GRAPHICS 




Brian Larkman finds Real 3D now 
has added realism, especially around 
the blurry bits'. He tries out the soft 
shadows and motion blur in... 




138 



sO 



3D modelling and Rendering 
RealSoft/Activa 

IT IS AN irony of computer graphics lhal 
however much detail and precision you put 
into .i model (an object in a 3D picture), it is 
still the 'blurry bits" that give it that realistic 
look. Look around you. as well as the fine 
detail objects' edges have, almost every 
shadow also has a soft edge. Similarly, only 
the objects that you arc actually focusscd on 
are sharp, those further away or closer, or on 
the periphery of vision, arc blurred. When 
things start to move, the blur becomes much 
more pronounced - though we rarely notice it. 

To create a "real* view of the world, this 
blurred effect needs to he simulated. The latest 
version of Real 3D can now claim to live up to 
its name because it provides all these "blurry" 
features and much more, without losing the 
underlying character of the system. 

There are so many new features in this sec- 
ond version that here we can only give you a 
flavour of the changes, concentrating first on 
the interface and working methods, then on the 
end product - the images, and what makes 
them so different 

The unique thinp about the new interface is 
that it can be stylised to your personal taste. 
Three sorts of standard, resi/able. floating 
Amiga window are provided: View. Tool and 
Select. View windows are of the working 
space within which objects are modelled, lit 
and rendered. Tool windows can contain 
groups of tools according to need. 

Select windows provide a hierarchical list 
of objects, elteets and materials. These are all 
familiar to users of earlier versions. The differ- 
ence is that as many. 01 as few Ol each of these 
types can be opened, customised and posi- 
tioned as >iiu need them, making the new Real 
almost as versatile as I. ego. 

Whv it's so versatile is that two or three 
Tool windows can be opened, each with a dif- 
ferent set of tools - perhaps Visibles in one. 
Lights in another, and Free form tools in a 
third. Nine tool sets are provided which can be 
combined mix "n" match style and supple- 
mented with custom tools of your own design 
based on a macro or the Real Programing 
Language (RPL) provided with the system.

An excellent impression 

of motion has been 

(tented in this image by 

the use of variable 

motion blur being 

applied to the different 

Bowling Pins and the 

BowUik) Ball. This is a 

reworking of a classic 

of 3D computer 

graphics, the original 

was created on Pixar's 

Render man system. The 

Amiga is fast catching 

up with professional 

graphics workstations, 

which cost much more 

money, and software 

like Real 3D 2 is 

helping to 

close the gap. 




REAL 3D version 2 
is available from 
Alternative Image 
0533 440041 



Even the Select window can be opened 
several limes displaying different parts of the 
hierarchy, allowing sections to be compared, 
modified or cut and pasted. 

It is the View windows that are the most 
remarkable though. Initially the regular Front, 
Side and Plan \ icws can be set up easily mak- 
ing the traditional tri-view interface. Any of 
these views can be flipped to any other regular 
X.Y. or Z viewpoint or rotated to a custom 
perspective view, so for many jobs a single- 
view window is enough. 

Alternative!) >i\ or even nine views can be 
provided at any size, viewing any part of the 
model at any degree of zoom, like surveillance 
cameras in a superstore. Rotating the view- 
point is similar to the control system of the 
wire-frame module in earlier versions of 
RealSD. but it has been combined with the old 
Editor module in each of the new View win- 
dows. Any View window can also be rendered 
at am available resolution or render type - 
Outline. Lamplevs. Shadowless. Normal - bo 
the old Solid "rendering" module has been 



combined as well. This remarkable integrated 
interface has one more surprise in store - 
Asynchronous action. In other words each 
window can operate separately and multitask, 
allowing one view window to render an image 
while another is being used to modify the 
model or design a new material. 

This all seems too good to be true In practice, 
some actions seem to interrupt the rendering, 
so the system is perhaps not quite perfect. As 
always, the more memory and speed you have 
the better it is for smooth action. The pre- 
release version reviewed is complete, but it 
only has a 40O-pagc Read-Me file for a man- 
ual, so I haven't read it in full yet. That said. 
the manual looks like being superb on the pro- 
duction version - a good introduction, plenty 
of reference material and a huge number of 
tutorials - looks like the perfect balance. Even 
using the Read-Me version it is easy to set up 
and use the software for most operations. 

Modelling with Real 3D has always been a 
unique experience, a bit like driving a French 



3D GRAPHICS 




car. And like ihe French, the Mcskancn broth- 
ers (the programmers ol RealSD) have ah\a>s 
taken an independent approach lo the pro 
cesses Ihey are dealing with. In doine. so ihe> 
have derived many of the tools and methods 
themselves, and have reinvented rav-tracinc 
on the way. 

Initially, all of the tools were designed tor 
solid modelling (using Boolean 'cutting' oper- 
ations to give real-world construction 
processes). Later versions have added 
FreeForm objects and point editing to give a 
more organic appearance to the models, and 
Compound tools to automatically link several 
solid primitives into more complex objects 
still a totally unique approach to construction. 

The latest version has many more com- 
pound tool types, plus Uniform Cubic 
beta-Spline surfaces to give really smooth 
results when rendering organic objects, 
(Though they can be a bit slow, the improve- 
ment over Phong Shaded faceted objects is 
well worth the time penalty). These objects are 
defined h\ a series ol Be/ier curves, so the 




Is it real or is it 3D? 



FRACTALS 
(SUNSET) 
Real 3D 2 offers 
two sorts of frac- 
tal objects - trees 
and landscapes - 
both shown in this 
picture. Tree frac- 
tals are built up 
from standard 
solid primitives - 
these are another 
form of compound object. As shown hero, and with 
considerable practice (no mention in the disk man- 
ual), they are still difficult to try and get them to look 
right. Maybe with more work and better instructions 
it would be possible to get them to appear better. 

TEXTURE MAPPING 
(FREEDOM) 
No blur or soft 
shadows here - 
but still a pretty 
dramatic picture 
with lots of tex- 
ture and bump 
mapping. The 
floor is a procedu- 
ral map - using a 
mathematically 
evolved pattern. 
The walls are 
bump mapped. 

ATMOSPHERIC 
EFFECTS (MOON) 
The glow in the 
atmosphere of the 
planet shown here 
is the result of 
using a solid mod- 
elled turbid 
material with a 
Local Scope value. 
This gives a vari- 
able blend of the 
materials used, 
depending on the amount of light passing through. It 
sounds complicated, but buy Rcal3D and you'll under- 
stand exoctly what I mean. 

SMOOTH 
SHADOWS When 
you first look at 
this it looks more 
like a photo than 
a render picture. 
The softening of 
the focus at the 
back of the board 
and along the 
pencil, (depth of 
field effect) the 
smooth edges of the shadows and the motion blur on 
the 'flying' dice are all so well integrated that it is 
hard to fault. The quality of the transparent dice is 
also excellent - the light passing through it is dis- 
torted convincingly because it is a solid object - try 
doing that in CaliqarW 






surfaces are true M) curves rather than the nor- 
mal sets of facets. These are also known as 

Surface Patches, Just in using slightly more 
advanced surface patches called Non 

Uniform Rational Beta Splines (NURBS* - 

you can create complex sensual curves that are 
now found on mosi consumer products; from 
cameras and Walkmans to cars 

An important part of model construction is 
the application ot material qualities to an 
object. As well .is the large range of surface- 
mapping methods thai RealSD has always 
offered, version 2.0 now provides procedural 
textures, Riesc replace the usual bitmap tex- 
tures', (used to determine colour and bump 
height) with mathematical models, allowing an 
infinite range ol surface effects. 

To make applying material to objects sim- 
pler, textures are now shown in the Select 
window 'hierarchy' and applv 10 all objects at 
theii level, so the) can be duplicated, moved 
and used on other objects easil) . The only real 
criticism is thai il would he nice lo have some 
form ol material preview, perhaps in the form 
Ol .1 wrapped sphere lor each material Mind 

you, the rendcrine is unu.iIU so last that most 

Objects can be rendered for real as ,i prev lew! 

fo see' these materials ami textures it is 
neeessarv lo add some form »»l light source. 
Real 3D now otters linear and wall lights as 
well as points. As light from these sources 

comes from more than one point, shadows can 
have a variable intensity, especial I) along their 
edges where it drops off gradually. In most 
cases this will give sou the soft-edged shad 
ows that almost every object in the real world 
casts, The arrival of this feature has done more 
than anything else to make the images of 

Acv/iD null) REAL. 

However good the interface, modelling and 

material tools of a 3D system are. it is the 
qualiu ot the images (lt.it really matters and 
RealSD - has come up with the goods this 
lime. A picture speaks .i IJKXl words, so I'll 
shui up and lei you appreciate the images here.

MUSIC SEQUENCER 




The Blue Ribbon SOUndWOrks' Mork:Bars4Pipes Profess ional/Exanpl* Songs/TMngy.song 



This screen is actually 
a lot simpler than it 
first appears. 
Here, the main 
track window is visi- 
ble behind the Medio 
Madness window - 
used to sequence 
onims with 
your musk. 



colourful MIDI sequencer is back 
with a host of additional features. 
Andy Nuttall faces the changes.. . 

IF YOt'RE USED to sequencers, where you 
simply create separate tracks of music by 
entering notes on to a musical stave or a "piano 
roll -type display, and then sequence the 
tracks together to make a song, then Bars and 
Pipes Pro will seem unusual to you. 

When you load the program, the screen is 
made up of 16 bars, each corresponding to a 
single sequence. To enter notes, double-click 
on the required bar. and a window opens with 
a magnified version of the bar inside, so you 
can enter notes either using your mouse or via 
I MIDI input. With me so far? 

On either side of a bur vou vmII notice a 
pipe. This is because Blue Ribbon liken music 
sequences to water pipes, with musical notes 
'flowing' from the MIDI keyboard, through 
the first pipe, and then recorded into the main 
musical bar in the middle. On playback, the 
notes in the bar actually 'flow' out through the 
second pipe on the right, and out to external 
MIDI equipment 

So why have the pipes? Well, a number of 
tools may be inserted into the pipes which 
affect the musical data as it passes through. 
For instance, the Echo tool can be added to 
give a reverb effect to the music: or an 
Arpcggiate tool can be added to automatically 
add an arpeggio effect to your sequence. The 
settings for the tools may be altered simply by 
double-clicking on their icon, so they are 
extremelN flexible 

Blue Ribbon are continually revising Bars 
and Pipes, and releasing updates, but this ver- 
sion is a complete rewrite of the original. The 
Irontend looks identical to version I. but there 
are loads of new features which make it into 
more than just another MIDI sequencer. 

h\ worth mentioning that the program 
will not sequence internal Amiga samples as 
standard. It's MIDI-only. but you can integrate 
samples using a patch called the Internal 
Sound Kit. bought separately for £29.W. 

The operation of version two is similar to 
the original. Most of the new features are 
involved with controlling other software and 
hardware. Big names such as the SunHize 16-

bit digital recording cards and the new 16-bil 
One-Stop Music Shop card from Blue Ribbon 
itself may be sequenced from within the pro- 
gram without using any MIDI channels - 
indeed, the cards have MIDI interfaces built- 
in. so a combination of these cards can give 
you loads of available MIDI channels. 

Other supported applications include the 
soon to be released G-Lock genlock and the 
IV-24 24-bit video card from GVP. Scala mul- 
timedia presentations and standard Amiga 
ANIM animation files. Also, the automatic 
mixing utility is compatible with virtually 
every hardware auto mixer on the market. 

Perhaps the most interesting feature of 
version 2 is Media Madness, which enables 
you to sync together applications to create a 
graphics and sound performance. Although we 
couldn't test G-Lock and IV-24 with the pro- 
gram, it runs Scala and ANIM files very well. 

Each application, such as an animation, a 
Scala presentation, or a graphic wipe is 
assigned a separate track of a special media 
sequence, and then to arrange them you add in 
the required notes on to the roll. A testament 
to the quality of this area of Bars and Pipes is 
that il was used on the promo videos for the 
LA and Atlanta Olympics, and The Batman 
Returns soundtrack was written using it. plus 
Paula Abdul and Evelyn Glennie swear by it. 

Bars and Pipes Pro 2 is undoubtedly a power- 
ful piece of software. In terms of MIDI 
sequencing, it uses an unusual system of 
inputting music information, so for the sea- 
soned musician it's not as straightforward as 
say Music-X. On the plus side, the interface 
does become logical after using it for a short 
time, so beginners should find it easy to use. 



Also, if you find that you haven't got 
room on the screen to fit all the windows you 
need, you can set a 'virtual' screen up to four 
times the normal size, and scroll around it 
using the mouse. This means you can put the 
track window in the top left, the mixer on the 
bottom right, the time code window some- 
where else, and not overlap any windows. 

Add to this its huge range of tools such as 
Media Madness and its compatibility with the 
high-end software and hardware mentioned 
earlier, and suddenly you have a studio engi- 
neer and video editor's dream. 

Bars and Pipes Pro is a lot of money, but 
it's big. it's powerful, and it gives all other 
sequencers, on all other machines, a run for 
their money. Excellent. O

Now I've never come across thai command before. Though not exciting on 
the visual sido, 005 LAB does contain some useful information. 





£ 1 9.99 ■ Disk tutorial ■ George Thompson 

Can you learn the basics of working with 

your Amiga by just booting from a disk? 

Richard Baguley takes a refresher 

course with a new disk-based tutorial... 

00$ LAB is available from 

George Thompson Services 0707 391389 



IT'S A PRETTY ambitious thing, trying to 
leach a beginner all of the basics of using the 
Shell and CLI. but this is exactly what these 
disks aim to do. This three-disk set contains 
two versions of the tutorial, one designed for 
Workbench 1.3 and the other for Workbench 2 
and 3 on the A600 and A 1 200. Each tutorial is 
is divided into several chapters, with each one 
covering a different subject, such as the list 
command or the intricacies of passing parame- 
ters lo scripts. The idea is thai you read the 
tutorial in the top two thirds of the screen, and 
practice the new commands in the Shell which 
runs in the bottom third. 

Unfortunately, hooting from cither version 
doesn't take you straight into the tutorial, but 
into the Workbench. So, in order lo start the 
tutorial off. you need lo open up a couple of 
drawers and double click on the icon, which 
for a disk that's supposed to be teaching the 
basics, seems to be rather a serious omission. 

You also have to Mart off the Shell your- 
self. It would have been easier though, to stick 
Ibis in the startup sequence. These disks are 
designed to teach you about the Shell and not 
Workbench, but even so it's rather B bad start. 
Alter all. if you are trying to make these nasty, 
uncommunicative things called computers eas- 
ier for a novice to understand and get to grips 
with, then you should irv and make the tutori- 
als themselves as easy as possible to start off 
by automating the procedure. Despite this ini- 
tial hiccup, though, the tutorials are prctt> 



good. The chapters are organised in a 
sequence that makes it easy to run through 
them, or just skip to a particular subject if 
that's what you're looking for. Much of the 
text has been distilled from the problem 
pages' of the Jumpdisk disk/ine, so it's all 
phrased in language that doesn't blind you 
with technospeak. 

After running through a couple of the 
chapters I have learned several new things, 
and the text is written in a good down-to- 
earth style. It's a great idea, but it's rather let 
down bv the presentation. It also seems rather 
expensive, especially when you look at the 
price of a decent hook tutorial, like the ones 
below. It's not the sort of thing that you'd use 
for a long time, and it's much easier to flick 
through a reference manual if you're looking 
for information on a particular command or 
topic It's a great idea, but unfortunately the 
way it's done lets it down. 



DOS LAB 



An Interesting Idea, but unfortunately spoilt by 
the poor presentation. The text Is well written, 
(hough, and Is obviously the fruit of many years 
of experience.

INSIDER GUIDES 

available from 
Bruce Smith Books 
0923 894355 




If you're looking for a guide to the A 1200, 
A600, Workbench and AmigaDOS, then 
Richard Baguley has the answer... 



Here's the Insider Guide for the A600 - there's 
also one for the HO version and the A1200. 





£ 1 4.95 ■ Reference guides ■ Bruce Smith 



THESE TWO BOOKS arc obviously aimed 
at the new AI200/AWK) owner, or the begin- 
ner who's interested in learning the basics 01 
Workbench on both the A600 and A 1 200. 
They're written by Bruce Smith, who's written 
and co-written several other books on the 
Amiga, including the excellent Mastering 
AmigaDOS 2. He's noted for his easy-io- 
understand style, and these two books are 
certainly no exception. They both star! with 
the basics of computing (questions like 'What 
is a tloppN disk. 1 ' 'How do I lormai a disk'.'"] 
and work through the tarious aspects of work- 
ing with Amigas. leading on to more complex 
subjects like scripts, printing and working with 
hard disks later. Both books include an excel- 
lent chapter which gives the real facts about 
computer viruses, and strips aw.i\ some of the 
fallacies common Iv held bv newcomers. 

All of the chapters have plenty of exam- 
ples and tutorials, which are written in a way 
that makes it easy to read and remember. 
Plenty of screen grabs arc included, so the 
reader can see exactly what's being discussed 
in the text. There's also a good index, which is 
invaluable when you're looking for a specific 
command or subject. 

The A 1 200 version of this book is more or 
less the same as the A WW version, but with a 
few sections rewritten and the screen grabs 



updated to take into account the (mostly cos- 
metic) changes with Workbench V slightly 
more about the new AGA modes would be 
appreciated. Neither docs it make any refer- 
ence to using a hard disk with an A 1200. but 
because these have only recently become 
available in either pre-fittcd or kit form, this is 
no real surprise. 

These books are well written, anil Bruce 
Smith has a style which makes even complex 
subjects seem relatively simple and easy to 
understand, even if he does have a rather curi- 
ous sense of humour. 

The book is eas\ to read, and the layout 
makes it easy to understand, with commonly 
used tips or procedures put in separate boxes 
on a page, making (hem easy to find. At 
£14.95 they may seem rather expensive for a 
paperback if you've not bought this type of 
book before, but it's a fairly typical price for a 
computer book. If you're a beginner or a new- 
comer lo Amigas. these two books provide an 
excellent way of finding your way around your 
new machine. O 



Insider Guides 



Good for the beginner who needs lo work out 
his or her RAM disk from their binddrlver An 
easy-going style makes It easy for both the 
beginner and expert to work through.

river. Clouds occasional!) liner the sk>. ami

\s you ma> have guessed, this is the new 

version of Vista Pro, Way back in the good 

old days (/If "35) \\c reviewed \ i*-ltt Pro 2. ami 
awarded it ( >2 per cent ami im Amiga Formal 
Gold. Those of you with even better memories 
tikis remember that we gave away Vista (the 
non-pro version! mi the C'o\crdisk of Issue 13. 
to the general acclaim of the masses. !t you 
weren't among them, copies 01 this arc still 
available on Page I5K. 

If you're one oi the unenlightened who lias 
nevei come across Vista before, it's .1 fractal 

landscape generator. It takes a file Idled with 
data describing points on ,1 map. and produces 

images from this using fractal mathematics 

The data can either be from a real map 
(obtained from data produced by the I S 
Geological Survey), or one generated In the 
program by fractal means from a random mini 
her. Applying some wend fractal maths to this 
data produces an image that looks like the real 
world, except you're in control of the lighting, 
colours, vegetation, buildings, etcetera. 



Vista Pro3 in action. 
Do we love it? My oh 
my, river deep, 
mountain high. 
A new release of Vista 
is always welcome in 
the Amiga Format 
offices, and Vista Pro 
3 is no exception. The 
ability to render to 
HAM8 format is truly 
wonderful, becouse 
previously you had to 
own on expensive 24- 
bit frame buffer cord 
to see the landscapes 
in their true glory. 
Now any At 200 or 
4000 owner with a 
hard drive and loads of 
RAM can see them.

This latest version comes with a variety 
ol data Hies, giving you the opportunity to 
make fractal models ol various parts of the 
United States. ,is well as parts of central 
Europe and the Olympus Mons mountain on 
Mars. All of these are based around mountains 
and other major geographical features. Attei 
all what's the point in generating a landscape 
that's Oat? Various other data disks covering 
most of the tall, lumps and interesting bits of 
the I SA are also available. 



Tins version ol Vista Pro will work with 
v\ 1 irkbench 2 or greaiet onl) . So. if you're still 

Using Workbench 1.3, this could be a good 
excuse for finally getting thai upgrade you've 
been promising yourself tor the past lew 
months. It is also very greedy lor memory . so 
you'll need at least 4Mb ol tree memory. 01

resolution AGA modes. If you're creating

LANDSCAPE NAME: usually 
the geographical area ot the 
landscape. 

LANDSCAPE MAP: colour 
indicates the altitude. Green 
ia the lowest, white the high- 
est. Colour also determines 
the vegetation used. 



COORDINATES: where the 
currently selected object Is 
located in 3D space. 




CAMERA FUNCTIONS: the 
position and alignment of the 
camera and the target. 



GENERAL FUNCTIONS: where 
to place clouds, trees, roads 
and buildings. Numerous 
options for adding rivers, 
lakes and starry skies are also 
controlled trom here. 



RENDERING FUNCTIONS: 

which smoothing, dithering, 
functions are used.

files, you'll need even more. This is ihe firsi 
program that I've ever used that's complained 
about the lack of chip RAM on an AI2IM). It 
can be run from a floppy disk. but. frankly, I 
wouldn't recommend it. However. I don't 
think there will be many people out there run- 
ning Amieas that have 4Mb of memory and no 
hard disk. 

I he main new feature of version 3 in Ihe 
support for the new AGA chip set. Using these 
new modes, if s possible to get images that are 
very close in quality to 24 bit. as you van see 
from the HAM-8, l024-by-512 pixels image 
above. However, you don't gel something foi 
nothing in this cruel world of ours, as images 
in Ihe new modes take significantly longer to 
render, especially the higher resolution modes. 

Fortunately, the new HAMS modes are 
HOI as prone to fringes as ordinary HAM 
images often are. As far as rendering the 
images goes, it does seem faster ihan previous 
versions. Also included is a wire-frame 
view option for looking at Ihe landscape from 
the camera's point of view, but because there's 
no hidden line removal, this isn't really of any 
prectka] use. You'd be better off doing a 
quick render to judge what the final image is 
likely to look like. 

There's now a good selection of new objects 
which can be scattered around, including roads 
which can run across the verdant pastures of 
your landscape. These aren'i overly visually 
exciting, but ihey could be useful for adding 
realism Unlike earlier versions, it's also possi- 
ble to place each tree and building 



Life beyond Mars... 

There comes a time when you get bored with generat- 
ing landscapes of Mars, and you crave a whole new 
world to look at. Included in the Vista Pro 3 package 
Is a program which allows you to reach out Into the 
wild and strange realms of higher mathematics. This 
program generates map files using a rather curious 
mathematical phenomenon called Lyapunov space. I 
won't explain this here (as all us journalists tend to 
say when they don't understand something them- 
selves), but suffice to say that it's something to do 
with fractals, and generates very weird-looking land- 
scapes which can be saved out as -DIM files, for 
loading into Vista Pro 3. 




The Lyapunov-to-DIM converter in action. I hereby 
name this mountain Mount Weird Lyapunov. 




And here we see the gentle slopes of Mount Weird 
Lyapunov, sparsely populated by cactuses. 



CREATING YOUR OWN WORLD 

If you're not happy with either the map files that come with Wsfa 
Pro or the random landscapes generated with It, then you can 
generate your own map. You can either do this by drawing the 
map in a program such as DPaint IV and importing It as a colour 
map or by using the add-on program TerraForm. This enables 
you to edit the files containing the map data (which all end with 
the suffix .DMS ) or create your own completely from scratch. 
You can even Include buildings or Stonehenge-llke structures. It 
was reviewed In AF2S, and we're currently waiting for a new ver- 
sion to be released. Once it hits the (Wsfa generated) streets, 
we'll give you the full lowdown on it. 



individually, if you require this amount of 
realism. On the subject of trees, ihis version 
now supports 3D ones, with lour types («»;ik. 
pine, palm and cactus). Previous versions ol 
\ istu only drew these in two dimensions, lead- 
ing Id Hal .iml scraum looking trees In 
version ' trees are drawn in three dimensions, 
and look pretty real. This adds greatly to the 
realism, but there's a big penalty to be paid in 
terms of lime, especially if you set the trees to 
draw in high detail. There don't seem to have 
been any profound improvements in the pro- 
cessing Speed of the program, with simple 
renders taking only a few seconds and com- 
plex ones still taking several hours. 

There's siill no support for producing nor- 
mal animation files, but there is provision lo 
run external commands after generating an 
image, so you could probably set it up to use a 
program like ANIMBUILD to do it for you. 
You can use the proprietory VANIM formal, 
but because ifs not supported b\ anybody 
else, it's of limned use. However, it does have 
the advantage ol not being limited by the size 
of memorv. because each frame is loaded from 
the hard disk before it's displayed. So. if you 
had a 2 gigabyte drive, you could have a 2 
gigabyte animation. 

There have been no great leap forwards with 
this version of Vista Pro. There are several 
improvements, and a lew new bits, but (here's 
no sense in going forward, if all you're doing 
is keeping up with ihe capabilities of the 
Amiga. However, it's siill the best landscape 
generator around, and it still has the edge over 
Scenery Animator for creating still images. 

However, the lack of any proper anima- 
tion facilities is a pain, and Vista may be 
losing adherents due to this. The VANIM for- 
mat works and is relatively fast, but It's a 
dead-end. because YOU can'! import Ihe files 
into any other piograms. 

Despite this, it still deserves an Amiga 
Format Gold. Willi the power of the Vista Pro 
program, and the stunning quality of the new 
A(JA modes, it's not difficult lo produce 
images of a quality indistinguishable from 
those viewed on 24-bit graphics devices. Alter 
all. this is what virtual reality is all about... <!>

So it's not o virus, just one of those weird bootblock 
things. Phew! 

The latest version (2.27) of this excellent virus killer 
recognises over 600 file and bootblock viruses, as well 
as a largo number of anti-virus boolblocks. This disk is 
designed to work with Workbench 2 and 3, and 1.3 
users will need to move a couple of libraries lor it to 
work, but this is explained in the document*.. 

Once booted up. it runs in the background and 
keeps an eye on the system. Every disk inserted is 
scanned for anything unusual, and you're notified if it 
spots a virus. There's also a Bootblock Lab. which 
allows you to examine and edit bootblocks, il that's 
your idea of a good time.

An E listing. If this lot mokes sense to you, then you're a 
better man (or woman) than I. 

E is a procedural higher programming language - 
whatever that means. It's influenced by C and is simi- 
lar in structure to il, and the author. Wouter Van 
Merssen. makes various claims lor it. including small 
and fast cxccuiablcs. incorporation of all Workbench 
2.04 includes as E modules and that only one program 
is necessary for creating standalone programs. 

It's still a pretty young language, but it has been 
well received b> various programmer types. As well as 
the compiler, the disk contains a number of examples 
and a scries of tutorials. This is pretty short, and starts 



with the basics (printing "hello world"), and then 
moves on to creating system functions such as a quick 
directorv reader.

Gross national pr oduct of Bosnia? Probably rather difficult 
to assess with all that's going on out there. 

This is a five disk collection of various educational 
programs, ranging from AmigaWorUl (facts and figures 
on several hundred countries around the world) to 
mathematical reflex tests. 

Several programs which don't seem to have an 
awful lot to d<> with education (like a fractal cloud gen- 
erator and a Workbench pattern program! are also 
included, but it's an interesting collection, especially 
for gcographs students.

BOMB JACKY 



This Is a platform game, bearing more than a pass- 
ing resemblance to (surprise, surprise) Bombjack 
on the C64. I do believe we're getting slightly nos- 
talgic around here, you know. Despite its somewhat 
questionable heritage, it is a good game. The usual 
sort ol platform thing: wandering around the 
screen, collecting all the bombs within the time 
limit while avoiding the green blobs, snails and 
other weirdies that bounce around. Occasional 
bonuses for freezing and slowing down monsters 
drop down the screen, just begging to be caught. 

It's got a good acidic soundtrack, and a gen- 
uine C64 feel to It. If you're a nostalgic old thing 
like me. this could be for you. Eee, I remember 
when I was young, games were real games. Kids 
these days, don't know they're born

DART MACHINE 

1 7 BfT '2377 

If you're a keen darts player, and In particular, one 
who Is not too keen on mental arithmetic, then this 
one could be useful to you. 

This Is an Amiga version of those machines 
you see in pubs that help you keep score. As the 
author, Tim Blacklock, puts it, "Fed up with losing 
count as you try and take 129 from 501? The Dart 
Machine is the answer!" Well, he would, wouldn't 
h«. It not only keeps the score counting down from 
501, but It also calculates averages and keeps 
your best scores. 

If you register ft with the author, he'll send you 
version two, which includes several new options 
including the facility to save and print out your 
greatest games. The disk also contains the sliding 
block game Yawn!, which Is pretty bog standard, 
except that you can have the blocks marked in 
European, Arabic or Hindi script. Is this the first 
multi-ethnic PD game?

Swimming agoinst the ride? Find out what's happening in 
the world of Scandinavian demos. 

Here's a new disk mag, that originates from the depths 
of Norway. It's a totally text-based magazine, but it has 
an incredibly nice user interlace and some good intro 
graphics. It's concerned mainly with the Demo scene. 
and the various coders and others associated with it. 

All of the stories arc written in English, and there 
are several interesting articles, one in particular about a 
recent clampdown by the Norwegian police on pirate 
Bulletin Boards. It's well worth a look it you're inter- 
ested in finding out who the people behind all of those 
scroll) messages in demos are.

Wordfinder Plus is a useful tool for crossword freaks. 
You can search for word patterns, or for anagrams. It's 
pretty quick, but with it only having a database of 
46.319 words, you may miss out on some of the more 
obscure ones.

ANGUAPDG6054 




A quick search for words with the pattern * l"ER reveals 
numerous possibilities... 



Eekl There's some creature behind me! And I don't fancy 
my chances of escaping from it. 

This is the first Workbench 2 or 3-only game that I've 
seen, but I'm sure it won't be the last. Morgan 
Antonsson has cloned the old C64 game Balderdash. 
and added a distinct Norse influence. You play the 
Norse god of light (Balder) in his quest to recover all 
of the rings. It includes 40 levels and a level editor, so 
you can set up your own. There are numerous objects 
lying around, and the game moves rather quickly. This 
is definitely reminiscent of the C64. 



TOOL 



PDSOFT V585 

This disk could be extremely useful for anyone who's 
into modems and Bulletin Boards, or wants to squash 
files down to fit on a disk. It contains a collection of 
file compression utilities, including UiArc. Zoo and 
several PkZip utilities. Several of the older programs 
(such as Zoo) are difficult to gel hold of. but many files 
on old PD disks or Bulletin Boards arc still stored 
using these type of programs. 

Also included is the compression program LhWarp. 
which compresses disks. Many demos are stored on 
Bulletin Boards in this format, and it's also useful for 
transmitting entire disks. 



DEJA VU UCENSEWARE 




No need for any more weopons. A large number of vikings 
with bod breath can conauer the world... 

If you're of a mind to go romping through the country- 
side and beating up other vikings, then this may be of 
interest 10 you. There's this bad guy who wants to take 
over your patch, so in order to oppose him. you have to 
take control of all 12 settlements. 

A bloke has sent you 1 .000 men and loads of gold, 
which you've decided to keep for yourself. Anyway, 
you've got to beat-up your opponents, and fortunately 
you've now got 1 .000 mates to give you a hand. £>

PD MUSIC & GFX DEMOS 



MOM 
>WNL 

TELESCAN, TWO DISKS 







emo 





Bored? Lifeless? Not feeling chipper and dandy? Why not join 

Andy Nuttall and Richard Baguley as they sift through some 

of the latest demonstrations of what your Amiga can do. . . 



The Silents meet Aleister Crowley, resulting in lots of 
demonic references and this rather, erm, serious chap. 

The Silents' new demo, curiously entitled Demon 
Download, is strange. A stonking soundtrack, with 
excellent bass and drum samples, threatens to blow 
your monitor speakers while the screen displays vari- 
ous images - including an eerie face crying blood, as 
pictured here. 

Other Beelzebub-type references include the num- 
ber 666 on the front of an Amiga, and a hideous, er. 
scrolly wavy message. Anyway it*s great fun. and 
there's a free game (Poo-Poo Dreams) thrown in for 
good measure. 




BORING 
YEAR 




I'm not sure that the title fits this particular demo - I 
mean OK. all the symptoms of every other megademo 
are here, but the music is excellent. 

Along with some fine graphics. Synlcx have put 
together a worthy addition to the range of Amiga 
rncgademos. but this one is apparently coded using 
AMOS. Good grief. 



Although this is strictly a megademo, this exceptional 
style of artwork is thrown in for good measure. 

If ever there was an example of the versatility of 
AMOS, this is it - glenz vector cubes, superb graphic 
images and clear samples (the musician credits French 
coder Moby, and the style is quite different to the usual 
megademo prog-rock style, in fact it's similar to much 
ol Mob\ \ work). \ lol of ^<>ik has gone into the pre- 
sentation. If you have AMOS, cither commercially or 
from our Covcrdisk iAFA2). then get this demo and 
discover another possibility opened up by AMOS. 



NAI 





The lemming with the big hair offers up a challenge to 
big Arnie - if he doesn't trip over his dress first... 

Call me a boring old whatever If you will, but the 
idea of crossing a lemming with the cult science- 
fiction film 2001 never occurred to me. However, it 
did occur to Kevin Rochowski, and the result is his 
excellent animation titled Hardly An Original 
Subject For a Demo' (subtitled 7 had my lunch at 
20.01, which was rather late). 

It concerns the adventures of one of those 
popular Amiga creatures: a lemming (yes, another 



...but before that he has to get past big M. That's M 
for Monolith, which is just about to drop on his head. 

one) which evolves from a patch of mud, then 
makes Its way across a barren wasteland, narrowly 
avoiding being squashed by a falling safe, before 
encountering a huge black monolith. Quite what 
one of these is doing in the desert I don't know, 
but we'll skip that point for now. The background 
scenery is Vista generated, the animation is nicely 
hand-drawn, and the storyboard has been well 
thought out. Recommended. 



A TASTE OF 



DEMO 



CYNOSTK PD, DISK 




A nicely presented music demo, with some exploding 
heads in it. Er, that lost bit was a lie. It's just music really. 

Musician Jim Young is no newcomer to Amiga music, 
examples of his work appear in various incarnations all 
over the world, but he is a newcomer to the PD Demo 
scene. After hearing this disk originally, we reckoned 
that his music was pretty good, so we persuaded him lo 
send it to Cynostic PD - and now here it is. 

His band is called U4ia. and after getting together 
with coder Lioth and artists Dane and Ramchip. A 
Taste of U4ia was born. The five tracks form 25 min- 
utes of music, crammed into one disk, and range from 
the Propaganda-csu,iie Je \V Sais Pas to Astronaut's 
Requiem, and it's similar in style to Tomita (he's a 
Japanese version of Jean Michel Jarre). 

Only one track is slightly dodgy, the interestingly 
titled This Heart Beats 4 V. which boasts some excel- 
lent metal-clang samples, but a horribly twee top-line. 
The other tracks make up for this and we can look for- 
ward to more of U4ia's work in the future. 



17-BIT, DISK 231 A 




Alvin demonstrates his new line in interactive headwear - 
tie's concentrating on making it ozone friendly...

PD MUSIC & GFX DEMOS fT- 



SOO THINGS VS TH 
INCH NAILS 

CYNOS1K PD, DISKS S0062 & S0063 

500 Things, aka Nic Cusworth. make anolher foray 
into the world of Amiga music with these two sin- 
gle-disk remixes. Regular readers ot PD Demo Zone 
will recall reviews ot previous disks such as I'm 
Jesus, I'm God, I'm Satan (AF36). Nic also pro- 
duced a cassette album under the name 500 
Things, entitled High on Hate, which caused a bit ot 
a stir among industrial music tans. 

Now. though, he turns his attention to a spot ot 
remixing, concentrating on two of the finest bands 
in the industrial' genre: Nine Inch Nails and The 
Young Gods. Each disk concentrates on a particu- 
lar track from each band. For NIN it's Get Down 
Make Love - a cover version of the Queen track 
from the B-side of the Sin single. The samples are 
excellent, and Nic uses the Octalyser program to 
mix the samples into a semblance of order. 

The problem with remixes of songs using the 
Amiga is the lack of singing - obviously It's not 
possible to sample long sections of verse, so actu- 
ally getting voices on the things is damn near 
impossible. With Get Down Make Love, though, 
there isn't much in the way ot singing on the origi- 
nal anyway, so the Amiga version converts pretty

Not sure what this image has got to do with The Young 
Gods, but it certainly looks good... 

well. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 
remix of The Young Gods' excellent Skinflowers. 
Even though the singing on the album version isn't 
exactly inspired, it seems that It Is necessary to 
keep the song (lowing. 

It's a cracking attempt - don't get me wrong,

Get Down Make Love (Remix) 




Nine ln<h Nails are an American industrial band, and this 
visual suits them down to the ground. 

fans of the genre will undoubtedly enjoy the disks, 
and it's nice to see some Industrial music entering 
on to the scene after such a long absence. This is 
the future ot dance music, so the more musicians 
we have making disks such as these the better off 
we'll all be. Nice one.

Continued from page 167 

Following in the tradition, which began with Hip the 
Frog by Eric Schwartz, and continuing with the likes 
Of Duncan the Dung Beetle b> Roddy McMillan. Paul 
Tye has jumped on to the bandwagon and created his 
own character. Alvin Aerosol. Unfortunately, though. 
it seems ihut this may be his only starring role, as 
you'll find out at the end. 

In true Rmul Runner fashion. Alvin makes his 
approach on to the screen with the subtitle 
Burncmupus O/oncus. and a slight pause. The. screen 
in question is Alvin's bathroom, complete with a wall 
cabinet filled with toiletries, and the obligatory rublx-i 
duck. SadK. Alvin's general peaceful and happ\ e\is 
tence is spoiled by a fly which is busy buzzing around. 

Fortunately for Alvin. he is the embodiment of just 
the thing to get rid of the offending fly - a can of 
insecticide! Without any hesitation Alvin aims and 
fires, and the fly bites the dust. Having done the dirty 
deed. Alvin then toddles olt outside into the blazing 
sun - and promptly explodes in a cloud of ash. Bit of a 
shame, really, because he seemed to be a promising 
character. Still, given thai this is a cartoon. Paul ma\ 
perhaps decide to resurrect Alvin at some point - let's 
hope it's soon. 



INEBRIATION 

1 7-BIT, DISK 2379 A&B 





Absolute inebriation? Seems os II the chief's been at the 
old firewater again, by the looks of him. 

Aha. but this one's in machine Code. It's not often 
nowadays thai I'm massively impressed by megade- 
mos. but this is the second that has caught my attention 
from the recent batch of PD. 

This two-disker is packed to the jams with all man- 
ner of effects. The music isn't particularly of note, but 



SAVINGS CERT ANIfVt 

1 7-BTT, DISK 2372 

Fans of Gary Larson will like this. Most ot the rip- 
off animations doing the rounds don't bother 
crediting the original, but this one does. It's based 
on the Larson animation used in the recent advert 
for National Savings Certificates - and If you don't 
know who Gary Larson Is, go out and look for The 
Far Side books in your local bookshop. 

Keith Nicholson thought the anim was so 
good, he had to do a version for the Amiga. It 
shows a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, where 
everything is made from line-drawings except for 
the butterfly itself. There's a surprise ending which 
doesn't actually appear In the original, and It's 
rather amusing. 

The graphics are all hand drawn with no trace 
of a digitiser, and are extremely faithful to the orig- 
inal, including Larson's signature. Excellent. 




Ah, the old 'frog-hidden-in-fhe-bushes-disguised-os-o- 
berry' trick. Gets 'em every tinw. 



the sheer varich of graphical twists and turns that the 
coders have included here are at limes breathtaking. 
There are too many here to note down, but without a 
doubt the best is the transition between titles on the 
intro screen. Alter One line Of text is displayed, the 
Amiga maps out each of the points contained in ihe 
text, then it maps out the points lor the next line of 
text, and final!) it quickly moves each point to its new 
position. The produced effect looks like an explosion. 
which then reduces down to a new order Fantastic. 

The other stuff IS almost a- good including some 
bits of swirly vectors and plasma effects that realty set 
your head spinning. Gel il and be imprevved.

AMIGA ADVICE 



FROM: RAJNISS BHASLEAN, STRABANE 

Just a couple of things. My battery bucked-up clock 
has disappeared - I know it's in a big triangular 
block inside rm A500. But how do I get it back? 




An AS70 CD-ROM gives you occess to some seriously fun 
CD titles, but as a creative tool I'd rather have a pencil! 



Workbench 1.3 has a bug, which lets out-of -control 
programs overwrite the clock with garbage. Afterwards, 
1.3 sees this as a clock that isn't there. There are many 
Public Domain utilities to take care of this and they arc 
similar to the Shell command: 

Setclock RESET 

except that they don't check to see if there's a clock fit- 
ted - they just zap the 50 bytes or so of clock memory 
with zeroes in order to clear it. Later versions of 
Workbench don't suffer from this problem. 

Another thing it could be is that the battery which 
powers the clock chip when your computer is off has 
gone flat. Not all battery -backed clocks arc rcchargable. 
Some use flat lithium batteries, like oversize watch bat- 
teries, which have to be replaced every few years. 




What's going on inside your Amiga? Why's it behaving in such a 

strange manner? What do I do when it all goes horribly wrong? 

Here's Pat McDonald with some reasoned explanations... 



Mso whkh is the better buy? \n A570 CD-ROM 
drive or a hard disk? 



Which is better, chocolate fudge cake or pilau rice? 
There's more satisfaction in the cake, but there's more 
nutrition in ihc rice. What I'm saying is that a CD-ROM 
drive is used mostly for entertainmcni and educational 
purposes, whereas a hard drive enables you to use your 
computer for various creative projects and to get the 
most out of your 'serious' software. 

Of course, some big games do install on to a hard 
disk, and you can get the vast majority of the Fred Fish 
PD disk collections on two CDs. so there arc exceptions, 
but the above is a good rule of thumb. 

A600 OR A1 200? 

FROM: MATTHKW HILL, GODALMDNG 
I currently own a Spectrum +3 and 1 am considering 
upgrading to an Amiga. The only thing is. which 
one? I want a 20 Vtb hard disk for sure, but do I get 
an A600 or an A 1200? I tried using a friend's A500 
with Workbench I J, and it was difficult. I want to 
use the machine for serious uses and programming. 

Either, really. Workbench 2 on the A6(X) is nearly as 
good as Workbench 3 on the A 1200. They're both 
miles, miles better than 1.3. Some perverse 1.3 owners 
don't like Workbench 2 just because it's different. 
Remember, the A600 doesn't go as fast as the A 1 200, it 
displays fewer colours and isn't as expandable - so an 
A 1 200 is a better buy by a long way. 

With a hard drive, does Workbench come up auto- 
matical!) when you switch the machine on? 

Yup. It's not instantaneous, but with mosi hard drives 




The A600 was designed as a first Amiga buy — it's a sim- 
ple machine that anyone will be able to get to grips with. 

you get to Workbench within 30 seconds. On an 
A4000 you'll find it's more like three. If you put a 
floppy disk in the drive, then the computer will start 
from that instead. 

Are there limitations to what can be stored on a 
hard disk? 

Yes. Hard drives are rated as having a certain storage 
value - 20 Mb. 40 Mb. 80 Mb and many other sizes. 
It's just like using a huge floppy disk that loads and 
saves like lightning. Oh. Mb stands for megabyte 
by the way. One million bytes and then a bit (1.048.576 
to be exact).

HOW MUCH IS 



FROM: KA WESTHEAD, NORWICH 

I've been led to believe that last RAM allows chip 
RAM to be accessed only by the custom chips, is 
this correct? If so. Is It worth buying a chip RAM 
upgrade, because I already have 2Mb ot fast RAM 
In my A600. 

Hmm, nearly got it. As standard, most Amigas only 
have chip RAM. which is general purpose RAM acces- 
sible by all the chips in the Amiga. All graphics and 
sounds have to be stored here, and it can also be used 
to store computer programs. 

Fast RAM is memory that can only be accessed by 
the processor, so only programs can be stored here. 
Because the custom chips cannot talk to it and interrupt 
the processor, well-behaved programs load themselves 
into fast RAM and leave the chip RAM for the sound 
and graphics. 

It is always worth buying a memory upgrade it you 
find that your Amiga is running out ot memory. 
However, this does depend on what you are using it 
lor. A gamesplayer doesni have a genuine need for 
more than 2Mb of RAM - 1 Mb is nearly always suffi- 
cient at the present time. If you are using a tool like 
MorphPlus, then 4Mb ot fast RAM is an absolute mini- 
mum, and 8Mb of the stuff is recommended. 



What I think you meant to say is that you have 
2Mb of chip RAM and is fast RAM worth getting? Like I 
say, it depends on what you are using your Amiga tor. 
If you aren't sure how much of either you have con- 
nected, then type this into the Shell or CLI: 

Avail 

The Amiga will come back with how much fast and chip 
RAM you have, plus a total amount. It also tells 
you how much is m current use. By the way. the mem- 
ory meter on Workbench 2 and above which says 
graphics memory' is referring to chip RAM. Same stuff, 
different name. 

I have been programming In Motorola assembler on 
a Macintosh as part ot my course at university. I 
tried to use the Devpac 2 disk from Amiga Format 
39 because I thought this would help me. However, 
I cant work out how to Initiate the stack pointer. On 
the Mac, I simply type: 

move.l BS3000.A7 

This doesn't work on Devpac. Do I need to use a 
different address, or Is there a completely different 
method of doing this? 



Also, how can I use CrossDOS with Devpac, so that 
I can work on files that I use with the Mac? 

Just save your source files on to a PC disk (preferably 
formatted on the Mac with Apple File Exchange) and 
then load it on the Mac with the same program You will 
almost certainly have to adjust the tabs and spaces, 
and maybe delete a couple ot spurious characters at 
the beginning of the file. But there's not a lot to rt.

AMIGA ADVICE 



174 






Do Amicus thai arc bought with a hard disk always 
have Workbench on them, or do I ha\c to go out and 
buy it separately* 

Usually they do. although this is technically illegal for a 
shop or supplier to do unless they have a licence to sup- 
ply Workbench. Commodore usually turn a blind eye to 
this, because they don't have the capacity to fulfil the 
entire market. It would also be embarrassing for them if 
[hey look .1 supplier to court over it - and lost. 



FROM; TOBY <>' KOI KKK BII.LFRICAY 

1 have ;i problem with my Citizen Swift 24. It bands 
colour pictures as it prints - how do I get around 
this? I have followed the manual and I've tried to pet 
Citizen Print Manager on to my paint packages. 

Try using a different printer driver and a different 
printer.devicc file in the devs directory. Printers some- 
times need a bit of tinkering before they work to their 
best capacity with the Amiga. 

Secondly, I want a hard drive for my A 1 500. I ha\e 
£400 to spend, and am tempted to get a OVP Impact 

2 HDK. with a 120 Mb drive. Is there anything 
cheaper, and possibly better, for the same price? 

No. GVP have the AI500/A2<HM> hard drive market 
sewn up. The old Nexus drives were up to the same spec. 
but the manuals and setup software weren't as good. The 
Gastcincr ALI-3 is a tad faster, about the same price, but 
again the manuals and software arc not so hot. 

And what does the advert mean when it says "8Mb 
onboard"? I already have 1Mb inside my A 1 500. 

It means you get SMb of lovely last KAM added to your 
computer as well .is the storage capacity of your hard 
drive. If you get 'out of memory' errors with that lot. 
then you -ire either using badly written software which 
cant see it (thankfully a rarity), or you arc trying to do 
something beyond the capacity of 9Mb of memory. Like 
creating a feature film on Deluxe Paint. 

Finally, why do you not test more hardware for the 
41500, A 2000, A3000 or A 4000 series of computers? 



MUMBO JUMBO... 

FROM: TIM BALL, SOUTHAMPTON 

I use Scribble! ana CrossDOS to transfer text docu- 
ments from my Amiga to the PC I use at university. 
No problems there, but when I try to transfer docu- 
ments the other way, it doesn't work. All I get is a 
lew characters ot mumbo jumbo at the top and 
that's it. How do I do It properly? 

I'd love to help, except that I haven't touched a PC for 
about six years and I have no intention of ever going 
back. I would guess that you are not saving the file in 
pure ASCII format on the PC CrossDOS is seeing a lot 
ot extra tunny characters in the tile, one of which looks 
like the end of the file (to CrossDOS) but isn't. 

Also. I am considering buying XCAD2000 with a 
large slice from my meagre student grant. I have 
heard, though, that it sometimes introduces irregu- 
larities into the DXF files as used on PC AutoCAD. 
Is this true, and is there any way around It? 

This feature of XCAD has received more upgrades and 



We test all we get. To be honest, most companies in the 
'serious' end of the market arc reluctant about sending 
rather expensive boards to me to be stripped, lorn apart 
and prodded. The reason is that, if an expansion is naff. 
then a company really doesn't want me to tell you that. 
I'd love to see more high-spec hardware, and I am con- 
stantly chasing it. But it's not easy 

BLAG TIIS/lE PRINTOUTS 

FROM: JOHN HEDGER, LUTON 

How many Amiga users have access to other comput- 
ers which hate printers attached? If it's a PC, or it 
can read PC disks, you don't need to lake the printer 
to the Amiga or vice versa; you don't need a really 
long cable. All you need is the CMD icon found on 
Workbench 2 or higher, and CrossDOS from Amiga 
Format 40. Here's an example of how you go about it 
to print a picture in Deluxe Paint: 

1. Set Workbench to use the correct driver for the 
I) pe of printer that you w ill be printing OIL 

2. Double click on the CMD icon in the Tools drawer 
of the Extras disk. This captures print and sends it to 
K KM:. If printing a complex document, then you can 
easily owrfill your computer's memory capacity. 

3. Insert the Dl'aint disk, and double click on the icon. 
Load the IKK picture, and print it. F\entually a file 
will appear in RAM. called CMDFilcI. 

4. Quit ii "in DPainU double click on the RAM icon, 
and select Show/All Files from the Window menu. 

5. An icon will appear, called CMDKilel. Click on it, 
and select Rename from the Icon menu. Call it some- 
thing more acceptable to a PC like IMACKI.PRT. 

6. Using CrossDOS. copy the file from the RAM disk 
to a PC disk. Click and hold on the icon, and drag it 
to the icon for (he PC disk from the RAM disk! 

7. Take the disk to the PC. and print it. Something 
like this from MS-DOS should do the trick: 

COPY A:IMAGE.PRT PRT1: 

It sounds strange, hut it works. In theory, if you had 
an Amiga with a printer and you wanted to print PC 
files, a similar procedure (piping the printer output to 
a file, transferring it on a PC disk, and copying it to 
PAR: via Shell! would do the job. There are going to 
be a lot of people caught printing out their children's 
work on an office machine! 

bug fixes than any other, probably. Put it this way - if it 
was true, it isn't true now. It depends a) on what version 
ot XCAD you get and b) what version of AutoCAD you 
are using. 



IT'S NOT MY FAULT! 

FROM: FRANK JACKSON, LANGHOLM

totally frustrated. 

Do you try Coverdisks out on the A600 as well as 
the A500 Plus? I wonder because I read so much in 
the magazine about the A 500 Plus, but there's very 
little mention of the A600. 





The A500 Plus wos replaced soon after launch, but that's 
only because the A600 was cheoper to build ond sell. 



Dude! Bro! You are getting us contused wiih a different 
Amiga magazine. I can't say for sure because 1 don't 
bother with the competition often - I find they 
plagiarise us too much. Lots of people phone mc and 
write to me to complain about Maxiplan. I feel tempted 
to help, but I've never even seen the program so there's 
not a lot I can do. 

I'm sick and tired of taking flak tor other magazines' 
mistakes. I'm also sick of having to tell people that 
there's nothing I can do. Sorry, but do other magazines 
take responsibility for my mistakes, when they don't 
even bother with their own? No chance. 

As for testing programs on the A600. yes I test all 
the Amiga I'ormat Coverdisk programs on just that 
machine as well as others. Please people, don't get 
Amiga Format mixed up with the other, smaller Amiga 
magazines. I know it can be difficult because they rip 
off our design and layout something rotten. 



XCAD 2000, the simplest of the XCAD series, is still way 
too difficult unless you are determined to learn. 



FROM: GRAHAM CONLON, FOLKESTONE 

I have programmed in the past on my 1.2 A500, as 
well as on some PCs and still do sometimes. I pro- 
gram in BASIC on the Amiga (fairly simple stufT*. 
but whenever I want to load the programs I've cre- 
ated. I hate to load BASIC first. Is there any way to 
compile these programs so that I can run them 
straight from a disk without loading the BASIC lan- 
guage first? 



AMIGA ADVICE 




Pie official Commodore Bridgeboord is the best emulator 
available - but it's not as cheap as a real PC. 

If you arc using Amiga BASIC, as supplied with 
Workbench 1.2 and 1.3. then yes. What you want is the 
AC compiler from Absoft. If s rather old now. but then 
you do have a rather old machine now. Try phoning 
around the mail order companies and ask if they have an 
old copy. As I recall it's a bit expensive about £70. 

I am looking for some other l.tn^ii.iut s for im Amiga 
and have already started In use Turbo C on the PC, 
it would be excellent if I could get Turbo C on the 
Amiga. Is it available, and if so how much will it be. 
Would I need a PC emulator? 

With a PC emulator, you could run PC Turbo C. If you 
want the best Amiga C. then gel SAS Lattice C version 
6 from Hisoft. It costs a lot (£200) but it's worth it. 

On the subject of emulators. I have seen ad\erls for 
PC emulators and PC cards. Although the cards 
seem cheaper than an emulator, what is the differ- 
ence between them? Also, give me a source for a 
good 2K6 emulator - nothing more or less. 

Well, a PC card is usually an expansion for a real PC. 
On an A I .MM) or above, then you can fit a Commodore 
Bridgeboard emulator which also Ids you plug in these 
genuine PC expansions (OK. this isn't much help to 
you. but it may be of help to other readers). 

An emulator is an expansion, usually fitted inside the 
machine, which gives a large degree of IBM/Microsoft 
compatibility. You can run many PC programs with an 
emulator, because PC software is written to work with 
a wide range of different brands and marks of PC. 

You've got a choice of two. the Vortex ATOncc 
Plus or the KCS Powerboard. The ATOnce is a 286 
emulator - important if you are using PC software that 
won't run without a 286. However, the KCS board is 
actually a great deal faster than the Vortex product 

The reason is that the KCS uses the Amiga as a 
graphics and sound display for a PC - you can't run 
Amiga software at the same time as the PC. You can do 
this with the ATOnce. but it's a lot slower. You can get 
a KCS from Bilcon Devices Ltd (WI-490 1919) for 
about £210. A Vortex board (you need to dismantle 
your A500/AMK) Plus to fit one) will set you back about 
£ 1 80. and is available from Silica (08 1 -309 II II ). £> 



Techno babble 

Do you know how to talk techie speak? Well, if you don't then 
this little bit of jargon-busting should sort you out... 



Accelerator: hardware expansion that gives your 
Amiga a taster CPU Often used with maths-intensive 
software where a standard processor is too slow, for 
programs called ray tracers' which literally trace the 
rays of light which bounce around a scene to produce 
a picture. Also used to considerably speed up flight 
and other kinds of simulations. 

Anim Brush: a brush is a small section ot a graphic 
screen, cut out with a paint program like Deluxe Paint 
Amm brushes are different small images with the 
same dimensions - lor instance, a bird flapping its 
wings or an eye blinking. 

■Utter: Block Image TransfER device. Used for 
copying large areas of memory from A to B, or 
to combine different areas into one single image. 
Widely used to generate large graphic shapes in 
computer games. 

Bridgcboardi Commodore's own IBM emulating 
device, featuring a complete PC computer on a single 
card. Only fits A1500 and above machines - enables 
use of standard PC cards. 

Chip HAM: memory accessible by the custom chips 
(Paula. Agnus. Denise) as well as the processor Used 
to store all graphics and sounds. Can be used by pro- 
grams too - with speed slow downs. 

CLl: Command Line Interface. The program which 
enables you to type commands into AmigaDOS for 
standard operations like copying files or getting a 
directory Shell is more commonly used now. 

Copper: coprocessor. Used to generate subtly 
coloured backgrounds - this device is built into the 
Agnus chip and it can alter colours while the screen is 
being generated. Executes instructions at the same 
time as the processor. 

CFU: Central Processing Unit. The decision-making 
chip, the one that tells everything else what to do. It 
can be interrupted by custom hardware it its programs 
are in chip RAM. 

Fast RAM: memory that's only accessible by the pro- 
cessor. Programs stored here run faster than those in 
chip RAM - hence the name. 

Frame grabber: device tor capturing live video data 
and converting it into computer picture data. Doesn't 
require a still video signal. Usually gives much better 
results than a video digitiser. which does the same job, 
except that the video must be paused. 



Freezer cartridge: quasi-legal device for examining 
programs while they are running. Usually with many 
useful built-in utilities which help overshadow its 
dubious origins 



Hard drive: basically a big disk tor keeping 
Workbench and all the serious software that you use. 
Works much taster than a floppy disk. More and more 
games are becoming installable on to a hard drive. 

IFF: Interchange File Format. A standard way of 
storing pictures and sounds, invented by Electronic 
Arts and adopted by Commodore. A single standard - 
practically all art programs can load and save pictures 
in this form. 



Kickstart: the name of the set of programs which 
are run when the Amiga is turned on. Also contains 
many library functions lor use by programmers. Latest 
release is Kickstart 3. Other releases; 2, 1 .3, 1 .2. t .1 . 

FOi Public Domain. Literally, software that is the prop- 
erty of everybody. PD disks can be freely copied by 
anyone, and you can also distribute them to whoever 
you want. The correct term is Freeware'. Shareware' 
(try before you buy) and Licenseware' (commercial 
and non distributable) also come under the same 
rough heading of 'very cheap software". 

KOMi Read Only Memory. Memory that cannot be 
altered Widely used as the starting programs for com- 
puter systems that have just been turned on - ROMs 
remember things permanently. 



li Random Access Memory Memory that can be 
altered and re-altered many times. Typically, it does 
not remember what it contains when the computer's 
power is switched off. 

Stmnnmrt hardware device lor reading flat pictures 
from posters, newspapers and so on, and converting 
them into computer graphics Often used in desktop 
publishing to read in previously published images. 

Script file: a set of commands which you would oth- 
erwise have to type into the CLl or Shell by hand. 
saved as a text file. Learning how to use Shell or the 
CLl involves learning how to write script files. 

Shell; more up-to-date version of CLl. Works In 
exactly the same way. but enables some flexibility in 
what commands are called via the alias' function. Also 
gives some hot-key combinations to enable some edit- 
ing of previously entered commands. 

Seund Sampler: hardware device that converts 
electrical music signals (typically from a tape or CD 
player) into computer sound Can also be used with a 
microphone to capture live sounds. 

sprite: a graphic object that is independent of the 
screen. On the Amiga, sprites are limited in size and 
colours. Typically used for mouse pointers, alien mis- 
siles, and so on. 

Startup-sequence: the name of the script file, con- 
tained in the S directory, which is executed after a disk 
has booted. Typically contains just the name of a pro- 
gram to auto-run, but can be very complicated 
Whatever the nature of the file, it must always be 
called Startup-sequence and live in the S directory. 

Workbench: the set of programs which set up a 
graphical point-and-click' interface on the Amiga. 
Much more friendly than the CLl or Shell, but not as 
flexible. Always has to be loaded from disk, which is 
slow but does enable much customisation Workbench 
2 requires a Kickstart 2 ROM. Workbench 1.3 requires 
a 1.3 ROM. 1.2 needs a 1.2 ROM and so on. 

Zorro: this the generic name for the Amiga's expan- 
sion connector. The A500. A500 Plus and A1000 had 
the original Zorro t; the A1500s and the A2000s have 
Zorro II; and the A3000 and A4000 have Zorro III. 
They are not compatible, hence the different expan- 
sions tor different machines. The A600 and A1200 
have a PCMCIA connector instead.

AMIGA ADVICE 



182 






Ql've noticed thai some games ha\e install 
programs to enable them to be installed on a 
hard drive, but what about a game like Strcetfigher 
2? Can these games he put on to a hard dri\e. or 
would this be breaking the copyright laws? 



ilitiUJiltl 




Streetfighter 2, one of many arcode games that come on 
non-DOS disks and so will not install on to o hard drive. 

A No. they cant be put on to a hard disk. A good 
rule of thumb to follow is. if you can look at a 
disk through Workbench, and see drawers, files and so 
on. then it usually will go on to a hard disk. If il"s 
reported as a 'non-DOS' disk and you can't examine it. 
then it won't. 

As for the copyright laws. I understand that the 
medium you use to store programs (floppy disks, hard 
disks, or PCMCIA disks* isn't the issue, so long as 
they are all plugged into the tame system. Copyright is 
only challenged when you use one program on more 
than one computer. 



Q 



What's the best virus killer that works on all 

\migas? 



A Virus Cht'fkcr. written by John Veldthuis. 
widely available from PD libraries and up to 
version h.22 .is I write this. Do beware though - some 
people put viruses on virus killer disks. Always cheek 
the disk with the program before you use it to go 
through your entire disk collection to* wipe off viruses. 
Also, never wipe an 'unknown hootbloek* - it's 
almost certainly a custom loader, rather than a virus 
that the program doesn't know. Wiping custom loaders 
destroys your game! Only wipe when the program pos- 
itively identifies a virus. 

Qllov* do I find out which AmigaDOS com- 
mands ;ire in the Kickstart ROM of an 
Amiga, rather than on a Workbench disk? I know 
•Version* is in Kickstart 2, and the -\\h>' and CD" 



Ol currently own an A500. If I bought a 
GVP A530 hard drive accelerator combo, 
would I be able to run software written especially 
lor the A1 200? 

A Not it the program needs the AA chip set that 
uses the new 256-colour or HAM8 screens, 
because the A500 doesn't have them. Mind you, if a 
given program didn't need them, then an A530 would 
run the program much faster than an A1200. 

A1200S have a 68020 CPU running at 14Mhz. An 
A530 has a 68030 running at 40Mhz. The difference in

Vista was our first Collection Coverdisk, and it will work 
on a 1200. It won't work straight from the disk though. 

A Oh no you haven't. Hold down both mouse 
buttons on start-up. Select graphics options, 
and switch the Enhanced Chip Set on. Go to the menu, 
ami select Boot options. Click in the box labelled 
'Disable CPU Caches' - a tick will appear. Then dis- 
able the startup-sequence, and hoot the machine. 
Finally, type this at the prompt which should appear:

The GVP A530 accelerator and hord drive gives you a 
very fast A500, but it doesn't improve your graphics. 

level upon which to expand your system. It you ONLY 
want extra speed, an A530 is worth considering. 



The specific chip RAM/ECS version of Vista will then 
load. Regrettably, because you have to turn off the 
CPU cache, it only runs about 1.8-times faster than on 
an A500 - but that's better than it not working at all. 



Q 



I have an old ('64 1541 disk drive. Is it possi- 
ble to connect this to the Amiga? 




A stalwart of the computer industry, the 1541 drive can 
be interfaced to an Amiga to play C64 disk gomes. 



A Sort of. If you get the A64 shareware C64 emu- 
lator, then it gives details of how to obtain an 
adaptor to plug in such a drive to an Amiga. 
Qucstronix (PO Box 340285. Hartford. CT06I34 
0285) sell the adaptor for S30. But you can't use a 
1541 as an Amiga drive - it's only for loading C64 
software that comes on disk. 

A64 can also load C64 programs from tape, if you 
have a sound sampler connected to your Amiga. You 
have to put the tape in a conventional tape player, and 
plug the sound into the sound sampler. 



Q 



What is an emulator? 



A An emulator is a solution, cither just on disk or 
a combination of disks plus some hardware, to 
enable an Amiga to run software from a different com- 
puter platform. Although this sounds great in theory, 
emulators never run all the software that they should. 

A CBM (or Vortex Golden Gale) Bridgeboard is a 
sophisticated emulator which lets you run practically 
all IBM PC software on an Amiga. Sadly, it only plugs 
into an A 1 500 or higher machine. The reason why it's 
so good is because it's literally an IBM PC on a card 
a completely separate computer within the same case. 



Q 



(an I just open a Public Domain library or 
do I need a licence? 



A No. you don't need a licence. If you're under 
18. get permission from your parents, and make 
sure they understand what you are doing. Remember, 
though, that running a PD library is not an easy, fast 
way to make money - it requires a lot of dedication, 
and hard work, because PD libraries are supposed to 
merely cover their costs and make only the small profit 
required to stay in operation. Good luck with it! 




AMIGA ADVICE 



Q 



What does I 'AD Mam) for? 



A Computer Aided Design - designing objects on 
;i computer screen rather than on a drawing 
board. Industry uses it to enable Computer Aided 
Manufacturing (CAM) lo build components like 
engine pistons, turbine fan blades and other absolute 
precision-based manufacturing. CAD has its roots in 
the Apollo space program. 

These days. CAD is used for much more than preci- 
sion engineering. Architects, archaeologists, fashion 
designers and others have all taken to CAD in a hig 
way. If you want to see what CAD is like, get 
IntroCAD on Amiga Formal 38. Just remember, if you 
want printouts from it you must load Workbench first, 
and double click on the IntroCAD icon.

Q 



What is an H'U? 



A Floating Point l nil. Essentially a chip that's 
very good at doing maths involving fractions, 
something thai traditional CPUs arc not very good at. 
CPU stands for Central Processing Unit - the chip that 
makes the decisions and runs programs. 



Q 



What does Y1H/ mean? Does it refer to the 
speed of a computer? 



AMegaHcTU. Hertz is a measure of frequency - 
how often something happens per second. One 
Hertz means that one operation is carried out per sec- 
ond. Mega stands for millions, so 7 MHz means seven 
million times per second. 

McgaHertz refers to the clock that is inside the 
computer, which determines how fast they operate. 
Don't get this confused with real-time clocks that 
remember the time, and record this information *4ttfl 
saving files (dale stamping). 

Yes. it is a measure of speed, but only a rough 
guide. A far more important factor in measuring how 
fast a computer goes is the number of bits (binary dig- 
its) it uses. This refers to the amount of memory that 
can be plugged in at once - 'addrcvs bus width' - and 
the amount of data it can shift around in one clock 
cycle- 'data bus width'. The original Amigas up to the 
A600 are all 16-bit. whereas the A 1 200. A3000 and 
A4IHK) are all 32-bit. 

Feeling a little bit confused? The best way to 
visualise this is to imagine pipes carrying water. Think 
of the water as information, and you're there. 
Obviously, 32 pipes can carry more information than 
16 pipes, if the information is being pumped at the 
same speed. £* 



In-depth explanation 

No 1 4: floppies 




Time or* wony different 
makes and models of 
floppy drive, but the way 
they work is usually as 
Commodore intended. 
Beware of buying a drive 
unless you test it - that's 
the only way to guarantee 
that ft works. If you are 
unlucky enough to acquire 
on incompatible drive, you 
are legally covered. Such a 
drive is 'unfit for the pur- 
pose' and so a refund can 
be got il you are patient. 



IOne of the great causes of hair loss to new 
Amiga owners is the constant swapping of 
floppy disks. The most cost-effective way to save 
your hairline Is to buy an external drive. If possi- 
ble, always test a drive with your machine before 
you buy it. In general, the slower the drive, the 
more reliable It is. 

2 Commodore deliberately set a low standard 
for floppy drives, in order to be able to use as 
many different makes in the Amiga as possible - 
more choice equals lower prices. Many third-party 
drives go faster than official Commodore ones. 
But these faster drives can be incompatible with 
later machines. Also, machine-code programmers 
sometimes step outside these boundaries because 
their faster routines work on their development 
machines. Such faster routines will fall over on 
many Amigas. 

3 As stated In Amiga Format, certain drives 
(the Power PC880B. the Roctec Roclite) were 
incompatible with both the A600 and A 1200. This 
is not true of new drives today - the manufactur- 
ers have since upgraded their designs to meet the 
standards. But. beware of buying secondhand 
drives - always test a secondhand drive before 
you buy it, both for writing to disks as well as 
reading, to make sure it works. 

4 Up to three external floppy drives can be con- 
nected to the A500A500 Plus. A600 and 
A 1200. so long as two of them have through ports 
to plug the connectors into. The only drive I am 
aware of which does not have this feature is
